Windows 7 on Athlon 64 x2 3800+ 2.0GHz and 4gb of DDR 400

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, my brother wants a pc mostly for minecraft and other not so demanding games, but he's really cheap. I have said cpu and ram laying around and would like to know how well they would play minecraft with Windows 7 x64. Graphics card would be HD 5570.

And also, I upgraded my Phenom II heatsink and have the stuck one, will this fit on a 939 bracket?

Thanks in advance.

That's definitely more than enough to play Minecraft. Other not so demanding games? Probably should be fine too...depending on what games. My rig isn't all that powerful but can run Battlefield 3 64-Player Map on low at 1280x1024 so yours should do fine for non demanding games. Not entirely sure about the CPU as I don't have experience with AMD, might need someone else to confirm.
