    Hi, I currently play League of Legends ALOT. I have a terrible Radeon HD 4600. I am thinking of getting duel GTX 560 ti cards, will this make a big impact on my gameplay FPS's? thanks for your help everyone!

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    It may make a significant difference to something like LoL, however it is also massive overkill. One GTX560 ti will easily run LoL on max settings.

    Having said that, there are also other things that you MUST consider before upgrading.

    1) Is your current power supply (PSU) good enough to support the new card? This is one of the most important things to look at and also something that is often ignored.

    2) Your current system may be a bottleneck for a better card, in which case you are potentially wasting money on a card that is being held back by the system in other areas.

    What is the exact make and model of model of the PC, assuming its a pre-built system like a HP, Dell, eMachines etc?

    If it is a self / custom build what is the make and model of the motherboard, CPU, RAM, power supply etc? The more info the better.

    I agree with Tanis, dual GTX 560 ti's would be overkill. Also, keep in mind that a more powerful graphics card means more heat created, a higher electricity bill, and usually more noise.
