Need help! $425 budget!

I'm in need of some help, I'm want a PC for college that I can do all my work on and play minecraft at fairly good speeds (60fps+) my budget is only $425. I do want to upgrade parts later on, on the PC, once I have a steady job. Does anyone have any idea on a good build or a direction I should start heading? Thank you in advance!

I'm also open for going the laptop route if I can get better specs for the same price. Thank you!

This should be a good starting point
