Best gaming PC for $500-$600?

Hello, my friend wants a computer to play Minecraft on, yes, just Minecraft. Not a $500 PC that will run games like BF4. He just wants to be able to play Minecraft on max settings and get at least 60< fps and only spend $500-$600 in the process, he doesn't know much about computer parts so I offered to help him. I was thinking a good i3 CPU and maybe a AMD 7750 or nvidia GTX 650 Ti? What are your suggestions. Feel free to just name one part but it would be awesome if you could tell me everything you'd put in it if it were your PC! Thanks!
