Someone posted a decent computer in my topic one who is perfect for gaming. Will run everything at very high ending.

Maybe you can go for the i5 instead of the i3.

Peripherals, color scheme, overclocking?

Sorry I didn't mention it in the original post. No peripherals, the color scheme should be black/blue, and overclocking is not necessary, but Windows 10 should be included. Thanks in advance!

Hello, As someone who recently built a computer, I've learned tons from it. The PC I made for you is designed to be a very strong base computer. No component in this built is bad, but it does come up to $730. When buying the case use Newegg Premier Free Trial to save $8.

You have a great motherboard, but it does sacrifice audio, so you will need a USB audio device. This motherboard will be able to overclock your 6500 to crazy amounts like 4.4 resulting in over 30% overclock. The CPU is arguable the most important part of the whole build, as Minecraft is severely limited by that one part. For the GPU I went for a R9 380, as it will provided excess VRAM for other titles, and destroy Minecraft shaders. The high speed DDR4 Ram will help largely prevent large FPS spikes, and provide a smooth gaming experience. The case is a bit big, but can fit nearly any card you want in the future. If this computer is too expensive, I have also made a cheaper option.

Note if you build this PC, I strongly advise you to overclock the CPU in the BIOS to at least 4.0Ghz

destroy Minecraft shaders.

Quite the opposite. I don't know if this has yet been resolved, but Nvidia architecture is heavily preferred for MC Shaders.

Thanks so the much for the list. The reason it went over 700 is because there was a Wireless Adapter in the list. Take the adapter out and it is $699. I cannot thank you enough! Again thank you.
