Hi my parnter and I really want to play minecraft hexxit with new resource packs and such but our current pc can't handle even that... so we've decided to build a gaming pc just a cheap one as we're not going to play Battlefield or crisis (got the xbox one for that)... We just want something to enjoy minecraft and sim City 5 with... Thank you...

Will you please list all components that we will need?

here is my suggestion
6 cores FX 6300
powerful GPU 7870 XT that can even play BF4 (you can always buy cheaper 7770)
