will this pc be good for minecraft

Recommended Posts

some more ram would be good. If you're on a very low budget you may want to consider amd's apus :) 


Bleigh!  Ever hear of AC series?

drop a gtx 750ti and your golden

extra 150$ but worth it, plus you can play more games

It should do fine if you don't turn up the render distance. If you don't have a GPU that you're planning on re-using, I'd go with an APU as @Nup said.

EDIT:

 

 

i kinda want to stay with intel

Might I ask why?

umm yeah as long as you don't pump up the graphics or like mod it or anything (are you reusing a HDD or SSD?)

Somewhat, integrated graphics sucks even with optifine depending on if you're running vanilla or lots of mods.

i play with vanilla with optifine minimum graphics and with sphax purebdcraft 128x128 texture pack

NO WAY, you cannot play on Sphax 128, you need a apu or a gpu. And since MC is a Single threaded application, the G3258 would be better

You're wrong, plain and simple. :|

Yeah that'll work, I'm doing pretty much the same thing and go between 40-100 fps. Keep in mind I'm using an older version of Intel HD Graphics.

Why?

An APU costs less, has the same power consumption and can drive any texture pack...

ok i wanted to stay with intel because i was planning on in a couple years getting a core i7. but if you can find a apu build that can run on the same platform that the fx 8350 runs on that would be great. this is what i wanted to do with amd if i went amd

Knew it was cpu heavy, didn't know it was single threaded though!

Ahh, i see your plan not bad, you could maybe go for the unlocked Pentium and overclock that. Although i dont think it has on board graphics.. so maybe not.

I used a Radeon 6xxx, it was HORRIBLE. But when switched to a 7850, it was smoother, Remmember MC has more items now, and to take use of Optifines graphic features, you need a gpu.

Plus a APU is better in the long run. People can get addicted to other games ya know :)

 

Also whats wrong witht a g3258?

I'm playing minecraft on an i3 2120 using the integrated graphics, this is slower than the i3 4360 and I still get more than playable framerates. Sorry, but it works fine.
