Axd541

62 months ago

So I have been planning my build for a while now and I am only 13 and when I started I knew only the basis of computer building. I have been offered an Antec Twelve Hundred v3 for free and will most likely take it, unless of course there are any cheap, sturdy built cases. My main question is will this suffice for what I am doing?

Any feedback will be greatly appreciated! I will be mainly playing Dayz Standalone, CS:GO and Minecraft. I don't really want to go above £500 but my maximum is £550. Thanks in advance :D

I like your choice of CPU coolers. That should let you overclock nicely. One change I would make would be to get an R9 270 video card. Such as this one http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-video-card-r9270dc2oc2gd5

Here is an alternate build you might want to consider. You wont need to overclock right away giving you time to save up for a CPU cooler to overclock with.

I really like the look of the R9 270x but I heard they don't run very well in Minecraft do you know anything about that?

Minecraft uses the CPU more than the video card so the R9 270 should be enough. For minecraft you want to get the best CPU you can fit in your budget. Head over here to ask for advice http://www.minecraftforum.net/

I know that Minecraft is CPU intensive, but I heard the R9 can't handle the shaders. Do you know anything on this?
