So lately I've been gaming on my new laptop and been mostly playing league of legends.
I have a sort of old HP desktop that works perfectly fine but I can't run LoL. It contains a 250w PSU and I was hoping to find a low end video card that would be capable to at least run LoL.

I'm sure the best answer is to just save up to buy a new rig or upgrade my PSU, but currently I don't plan to play any other PC games besides league so I'm not fully ready to dish out the big cash to play any high end games.

Although I do use my laptop more often, it would be nice to play on my desktop too.
So... any suggestions?

You don't have to spend $70 to get a quality PSU.

Why is it that he can hit a 3rd baseman on a frozen rope from 300 feet away, but he can't hit a 12 foot tall catcher from 60 feet 6 inches away?

What's it currently got in it for a video card?
Anyway, you could probably shove a 6670 in it and play LoL decently.

I think it's some integrated card. So far I've been looking at some of the 6670 cards and I've been seeing it has a 400w minimum or maybe I'm looking at the wrong ones

Nah, a 6670 should run fine. Video manufacturers exaggerate their power requirements a lot to cover their asses.

I concur. That 400W is nonsense. I owned a 6570 which according to AMD used 400W when in reality at peak ran at 130W. I'm sure you could run a 6670 just fine. You can always get a new rig though. If you're just playing LoL AMD's APU solution would work just fine for you.

Sapphire 7750 low profile. Sort of hard to find and expensive but its prettty good.
