    I have wanted to see if I can upgrade my computer to play LoL at a good amount of FPS, my price range for new parts is a around 150$ and im not looking to buy a new PC.
    These are the system requirements, all the parts except the RAM and video card for my computer were able to play at recommended, so Im looking for those two things, or anything else I might need. I'm looking for the cheapest amount to spend also.

    Even if you have a Dell OptiPlex GX280 with the largest case size, it's too old and doesn't have upgrade options with the necessary "horsepower" for gaming.

    Even if you maxed it out with 4 GB(4096 MB) of RAM and installed a graphics card and installed a more powerful power supply, its processor type and speed and its motherboard limitations would be a performance bottleneck.
