You will need a much much better video card, but that will do for a base system.

It should be fine for Runescape, but not for League of Legends.

In the future please do not spam multiple forums with the same topic. One issue one post in one forum please. The shotgun approach of plastering the forums everywhere with the same post just confuses you with multiple and possibly conflicting information. As well as wastes the time for those who help responding to a post that has been answered in another forum by someone else here.

Thank you.

I have deleted your 5 other identical topics that were in other forums.

What would need to be added for League of Legends to run properly?

And what would the cost of that be.

A graphics like this one would do but we do not know what motherboard it is, so can't determine which tyhpe of slot it has.

pulled this from the AMD site for the card:
ATI Radeon™ X1650 Specifications
Features

* Dual-link DVI
* Twelve pixel shader processors
* Five vertex shader processors
* 128-bit 4-channel DDR/DDR2/GDDR3 memory interface
* Native PCI Express x16 bus interface
* AGP 8x configurations also supported with AGP-PCI-E external bridge chip
* Dynamic Voltage Control
Judging by this ALONE, the motherboard it is in should be able to upgrade to a more modern card. Please understand that this card was sub 100 dollars in 2007. so honestly I dont even think 200 is a fair price for this "PC"
you are purchasing a old OS(XP)
a smallish hdd that at best is worth 25 bucks and 10 bucks worth of ram.

I would think you would be better served purchasing a bare bones system and building your own, or if you simply must purchase this one, offer them 100 dollars as is where is, and then start replacing the parts with better stuff. It makes no sense to purchase a system that out of the box you can not do what you wanted it to with out upgrading the parts first.

We will have to wait for the OP to reply with the type slot. PCI-E is a lot cheaper then AGP.

easier to find to
since agp has been dead for about 5 years now

regardless, still think 200 bucks is too much for a outdated rig like this.
You could do better on craigslist, calling this a "custom" computer is like
putting fancy rims on a Daewoo an calling it "tuner"

The highest AGP card you purchase is this.
