Minecraft Only PC Build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. I was looking forward to build Minecraft only PCs (multiple of them). I have a similar thread running in AMD forums as well but I wanted to hear suggestions for Intel based builds as well.

I wanted some recommendations and suggestions on a complete build within 500-600$. It should be able to run Minecraft at highest settings and at 720p/1080p if possible. Highest settings meaning, Fancy textures, smooth lighting, Far distance rendering, Maximum particles. If possible should be able to accommodate HD textures.

Thank you.

P.S (If it can run other games on low settings then that would be a bonus+)

At 720p you really don't need anything spectacular, any decent mid range GPU will do the job and couple that with a powerful dual core or mid level AMD quad and you should be fine.

A $500-$600 dollar budget won't get you much. At the most, you'll be able to run a Mini-ATX build with a small case and motherboard and probably an AMD FX processor.

I'd go SFF just because you can...my list would be:
i5 3350P - $180
Gigabyte Z77M-D3H $115
HD 7850 2GB - $140 (Don't really need more for 720P, since it's more CPU bound than anything)
8GB G. SKill RAM - $70-85, depending on if you want DDR3 2400.
XFX Core Edition PRO550W- $60
Just some 60GB SSD - $60
Silverstone PS08B Case - $35
Total - $660
Probably one of the best for the price if you're just doing Minecraft, it feels like I forgot something. I would strongly advise Intel over AMD in this situation because Minecraft isn't well threaded and 720P is a CPU bound resolution. I bet someone could come up with something better though, this is just what I would personally pick.
