Is there a way to cheaply upgrade this computer so I can play League of Legends?

That's an old computer I had in my house forever. I installed a fresh copy of windows,

I just want to be able to run LoL so I can play with my friends and so they will stop nagging me. I also wouldn't mind for it to work faster, since sometimes it takes too long with simple stuff.

League runs on a toaster, so I'm pretty sure it'll at least play. If it doesn't, buy a budget video card and you should be fine

If it can't play LoL it's time to replace it outright.

750ti or 660, depending on your PSU/budget/available space within the case. Or maybe a low profile 7750. Hell, even a 750 should be fine for league.

Well apparently a toaster is better than this computer and offers bread lol, since Can you run it says no and LoL is laggy as hell. Unplayable.

BTW I know nothing of computers guys, so all that is foreign to me.

I would appreciate links to new egg on what to buy.

Thanks for the help and time any of you put into this. I really appreciate it.

If you could take a picture of the back/inside of the case and find the wattage on your PSU that'd go a long way towards helping us give a recommendation.
