  1. well...you're missing a drive and RAM, so no. You've not met your $200 price point.
  2. A $200 gaming PC won't last you a year. Spend a bit more on a better PC like this.

    Remember that minecraft is ram dependent. this build is an APU, Meaning it has a hybrid gpu/cpu so you can even play bf3 without the need of a dedicated graphics card on low/medium present games.. and some games on high settings. and later if you can, buy an additional 7750 and it is crossfire compatible with that apu and you can play modern games even high/ultra settings on 780p.

    If you are really on a tight budget then ask somebody if they have a free copy of windows :D even on internet you can find one but its up to you. you can get -80$ less on your budget build.

  4. My advice is to ask around and collect as many parts as you can, list what you have here and we'll tell you what you should use and what you need to buy.
  5. TBH, if you only have $200 then don't spend your cash. You wont be able to build something worth buying.

    I didnt add a Hard Drive because i already have that and i already have the ram.
