Minecraft only PC Build - Page 8

post #71 of 75
That looks very nice. I would personally approach the Pentium as an opportunity to hold the budget down low:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/24bBE

~$513 shipped, $30MIR brings final price below $500.

If you want to spend the full $600 then an FX-6XXX or i3 would likely fit in there as Chargeit was pointing out (I missed that combo he was using in the build, certainly he has shown that an acceptable bunch of parts can come together to fit a higher end chip into this budget). That would open the door to better performance in a growing numbers of multi-threaded games but wouldn't do anything to improve MC performance.


The motherboard you have picked out there for an Intel build is a really nice unit, probably a lot nicer than necessary but would be a good platform to start with if you wanted to have upgrade paths to i7 and E3 chips wide open without any concern of VRM potency.

You know the reason why I chose for the G3420 was because the G3220 doesnt support 1600mhz DIMMs

If he really wants a SSD, he could not bundle the CPU and HDD. Instead just get the CPU, and a SSD. It would only add 40 bucks. Just add a HDD later if wanted.

Also, the HD7850 is cheaper than when I had last looked at them. Since you can get one so cheaply now, I don't think it's a bad idea. I still like the HD 7870, simply because it's what's currently recommended.

Yea, the Fx6300 wouldn't really improve minecraft performance, it would simply be a better option for up coming games, and multi-tasking.

@XeusGamer - I didn't add mail in rebates to that price of 588. What I listed, at the time had 50 in mail ins I think. I also didn't check out amazon, or Microcenter. I'd go with that 912 without a doubt.

We don't have Microcenters where I live. mad.gif

The thing is I live in India, I am just taking hardware suggestions. For the price I have to convert it to INR (Indian Rupees) and search them here for cheaper rates.

That can change things a lot.

It's hard to build for someone who's paying different prices.

At least you've got a good idea of some options now.
