I recently had this setup
cpu: AMD a6-5400k
gpu: GeForce GT 730 1GB GDDR5
ram: 4GB
PSU: 600w
and League of Legends was averaging at like 60 frames~ish.
I was looking around some of our stocked computers here and found an i3-540. Is that somewhat better than my current cpu?

Greetings!
The i3 will likely show better performance (depending what you are running possibly) for it has hyperthreading which will give you 2 more threads to play with, which is quite helpful for modern applications. Here are a couple links to help break them down in comparison:

http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/301/AMD_A6-Series_A6-5400K_vs_Intel_Core_i3_i3-540.html
http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i3-540-vs-AMD-A6-5400K

The first link gives the best comparison IMO, but to shorthand, the A6 has newer instruction sets, is overclockable, and runs cooler than the i3, but none of that seems to give the A6 any real boost over the i3.

Hope this helps!
