I'm trying to find a computer that runs Minecraft at 100+ FPS. I built a PC on PCPartPicker- http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Heinbre/saved/2a0c but it is a little more than I want to spend. I was looking to only spend around $500, so if anyone could help me find a pc that can run minecraft at 100+ FPS that would be great.

Why do you want 100+ FPS? Minecraft isn't a twitch based game, 40-60 FPS is more than enough.

I'm going to be recording Minecraft, so I will need it to stay lag free while recording. I'm not too familiar with FPS and computer specs.

The purpose of the A-Series processors is that they are APU's and have GPU and CPU on same chip

I've heard integrated GPU's don't preform as good.

We are talking about Minecraft, it isn't that intensive and doesn't need a really powerful GPU

This PC should be good if you want to run minecraft and maybe a few other higher end games in the future.

I didn't include a graphics card because you can get the card for about $180 Cheaper if you buy it from ebay or another used market place.
(I highly recommend the GTX 560 Ti for your build)
I also included two HDDs because it reduces lag when you record to a separate HDD.

Happy Gaming!

Just a quick add-on, you can upgrade a large amount of these parts to make this PC better, but as of now it will run Minecraft at about 120 FPS+
