Not sure if I am posting this in the right section but I was looking to have some opinions and suggestions from experienced players on a good but relatively cheaper build for playing Minecraft ONLY and yes its EXCLUSIVELY minecraft at MAX settings at 1080p.

As a price range I would set it from 500-600 USD

I have absolutely no idea about CPUs and GPUs with regards to Minecraft. Some say its CPU intensive, some say its GPU intensive and some say its RAM intensive.

Please link me parts from pcpartpicker.com

Thank you

From my experience with minecraft (which may be a bit dated) It can be cpu intensive, but faster clocks will help you better than lots of threads. Ram is important because it's java, but 6GB should be sufficient, but 8 would be nice. VRAM is very important for high-res texture packs but I don't think gpu speed itself makes that much of a difference. SSD also provides significant improvements. I imagine you can get away with a pretty small one, but I suppose that's up to your judgement. This can probably be done pretty cheap, especially if you get used parts for a lot of it (and there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to).

cant view pcpartpicker where i work, but i would imagine an AMD APU + 8gb ram of your choice, 120gb SSD (brand/model) based on your choice due to price variations + 450w PSU would be gravy.

proc - AMD A10 6800k 130ish?
motherboard - pick one in the 80buck range since you arent OCing...FM2 socket.
ram - 8gb of your choice based on price, can prob pick a basic kit up for like 50bucks.
SSD - example, samsung 840 120gb can be found in the 100-120 range.
PSU - i believe corsair sells a 450w PSU for like 70...450vx or something.


this setup should be able to play minecraft however you want and it sits in the 450 range.
gives you some room to get a case, periphials if you dont have them and an OS if you arent using linux.

Currently Playing: Deus Ex Mankind Divided, SOMA
