My friend is in need a build for Minecraft. $350 tops. Case, OS and peripherals are not needed. I was looking at the A8-6600K bundle at Microcenter or Is it possible to get the FX 6300 with a GPU? Thanks in advance and please no flaming, I am open to AMD and Intel. Also, no overclocking will be done
Now the real question is, were his cards just hot or were they actually overheating. there is a major difference.
im not. he has 2 GTX 260s. He said that he wanted an upgrade, not an entire system overhaul
I went a little over PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($233.98 @ SuperBiiz) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($34.98 @ SuperBiiz) Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD5H ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($184.99 @ Amazon) Memory: Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($64.99 @ Newegg) Total: $511.95 (Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts...
I saw this kick starter today and thought it looked really cool. It has a lot of potential. Surviving in a Dinosaur wilderness seems pretty sick to me. I can't wait till it gets released. I am eagerly awaiting this. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/524168447/the-stomping-land He has a couple of videos on youtube too. http://www.youtube.com/user/TheStompingLand
Does anyone know if the 3.5mm jacks will vary in quality of sound? Or can I just get any 3.5mm stereo jack? Headphones are Samson RH600s Basically, is there a difference in quality in these http://www.newark.com/jsp/search/productdetail.jsp?sku=97K2702 http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/718145-REG/Comprehensive_MJS_CM_MJS_CM_Stereo_3_5mm_Female.html http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2103452 Thanks in advance for the help!
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-fx-pentium-apu-benchmark,3120-6.htmlI found it. A quad is not always better than a dual. More cores is not better for SCII. It only uses 2 threads.Source
Isn't SCII only single threaded? I am not certain on this, but I know at most it is dual threaded, so the performance increase between an i5 an i3 should not be as noticeable as you are saying. A dual core i3 chip will run a dual threaded application much better than a quad core FX Chip. Anyways, He might get 25 MIN FPS in a benchmark environment and should average about 40FPS, but in normal games he should be getting 60+ FPS
I would probably go with a 2GB GTX 650 Ti. You can go with an Ivy pentium or an i3. For SCII it should be good enough. An i5 was just a precaution. Try to keep a SSD in there as it will make the system feel much faster.
ahh okay, makes more sense now
