I've never played minecraft, but don't you need a gpu?

Razer submitter 1 Build 1 point 31 months ago

No, graphics are integrated within the CPU. By the way, Minecraft is more CPU intensive than GPU intensive.

For £300 not bad, but minecraft will most definitely benefit from even a low-mid end GPU.

Razer submitter 1 Build 1 point 31 months ago

I agree, but even the integrated GFX is enough to get decent FPS on dedicated quality settings

Just something to consider as an upgrade a bit further down the line :)

not bad... i did a 250 budget build. reusing my hdd and optical is why it was 250sh. but i went amd route on the cpu.. AMD A8 5600k. This is what i ordered last night: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/t6LP and came w/ Dirt Showdown for free w/ the cpu i think. I will have this in the mail on monday then i can build, take pics and upload .^

Nice builds, man. However, i prefer Intel over AMD. But it doesn't matter, it's all about what you prefer...

well this cheap build is my first build and using it as a htpc basically. my 2nd build ill know more on putting stuff together and cable management and the 2nd build im going w/ an intel i7 cpu... id rather have my first build be on a cheap one just in case something goes wrong and im not out a lot of money :p

I'm not on budget either, that's the reason for using such a cheap CPU like Celeron G530. But G530 is quite enough for my needs, as i'm not a hardcore gamer or anything like that.

reason for my cheap route is cause im out of work and my current rig is shtting on me w/ its 1.6ghz single core cpu and 1gb ram... im going to see huge increase in performance w/ the 3.6 quad core :D.. also my pc has a shtty built in graphics on the mobo and i can hardly play facebook games on this :(

My previous PC was ****, too. The main reason is ****** 10-years old Celeron D 330 working at 2.66 GHz. Also, it had only 256MB of RAM. Windows XP booting lasted for almost 15 mins.

Your current rig walks circles around mine, so you should be happy with it :)

Are you happy with your choice of Power Supply so far?
