    o.o

    Take an SS of your video setting, maybe there is a setting that your card doesn't like or something

    Maybe if you told us which game you are playing we would be able to help you.

    I've had loads of issues with LoL, most of the time, a reinstall, or since recently available, a repair helps.

    League of Legends is such an incredibly buggy game lol, its a wonder its playable at all at the moment.
    Dent1 says thanks.

    So it isn't Laugh out Loud?

    League Of Legends doesnt look like its supported too well TBH. Published by Riot Games?

    Probably software related, reinstall the game / drivers is probably all you can do.

    PS. You PC looks unbalanced, top notch i7 with a ancient 4870?

    I wouldn't call 920 high end anymore, and maybe he games occasionally, so why would he need a super beefy graphics card?

    The fact that his pc is, according to you " unbalanced" doesn't matter though.
    His pc should be easily sustaining 60fps at max settings when playing LoL.

    Not saying he needs a beefy graphics card, his card seems adaquate for playing LOL.

    Just pointing out that it looks strange seeing a 4870 outside of a Core 2 Quad build.

    Hehe, did not mean it personally or anything:) was just making sure it wouldn't be seen as a potential issue that could be causing his problems^^

    Drivers + a Reinstall then let us know how it goes.

    I'm assuming its just LoL that you have a problem with

    The 4870 was a great card back when the i7 920s came out FYI, he just didn't update his system since then

    I'd say an i7 920 OCed to 4Ghz is like an i7 2600 (non-K). LGA 1366 is a great alternative for cheap but powerful HT processors.

    Watch your video card clocks with Gpu-z see if there stuck sometimes if you watch a youtube video and try to play a game your card wont throttle right

    Sounds to me like a bad driver install. Do a full uninstall of the drivers. Run a driver sweeper program to erase all remaining traces of the previous driver install, and reinstall most current drivers(CCC 12.4)
