Minimum Requirements For 60 FPS In Minecraft?
A friend of mine is a big fan of the game Minecraft, but his ancient Lenovo has trouble running the game. So, he has decided to build his own PC. I recently built my own computer, and I in general know more about them, so he asked me to help. What are the minimal requirements to run the game at 50-60 FPS? I would prefer it if you didn't give me a PCpartspicker list, and just said "4 gigs of RAM", "Radeon 7850 or better", ect, but any info would be great.
The bigger the server/world gets the slower the game will run though.
Minecraft is kind of a huge resource hog the longer you play it.
Get an i3-4130 for him. No discrete graphics needed. A 4 or 8 GB kit of RAM at 1600 MHz+ would be good as well.
I didn't have a graphics card for a short period of time and all I could really play was Minecraft. Now, I am using an i5-4670K, but I got to 120 FPS quite a few times using the integrated graphics (Intel HD Graphics 4400, same on the i3) so the i3-4130 should do just fine. For a motherboard you can pick up an MSI H81M-E33 on the cheap side ($45) and a CX430 shouldn't set you back very far and that's all you'd need anyways.
Maby you just take an APU? - try this one: http://austinnotduncan.com/builds/proton/
austin makes some good pc designs and this one can run minecraft at about 55.5 fps on fancy
