Best $750 Gaming PC Setup?

Hey guys, I was wondering if someone can give me the best possible gaming PC parts on PCPartPicker.com for $750. I want a good gaming computer that can run Minecraft while RECORDING at a stable 60+ fps. I know it is possible if I am building it myself because reduction of labor costs. I also want to be able to play high-end games as well. Thanks. :)

    Awesome build. Swap out the 7870 for a r9 270x. Buy on amazon and its even cheaper. The 6 cores+ the r9 270x should play all your games fine, and also if you can go upto 800, get a r9 280 xfx.
  2. I'd go with an i5, r9 260x/270 hdd+ssd build, apparently recording requires a lot of hdd bandwidth. Ill update in a couple minutes with a build. US, right?

    II'd actually upgrade to a r9 270/270x, if you have the money. But for minecraft, it won't matter. (Actually, you might want to consider nvidia, they're always advertising their gpu accelerated recording- shadowplay is it? Might want to give it a thought.)

    Hmm.. I like this, I might be able to squeeze a bit more into the budget, just maybe. If I can I will consider this. How much FPS will I get you think in a game like Minecraft while and while not recording? If you could make an estimate that would be great. :)

    Is there any way you can minimize that fps by making is cheaper so I can fit a monitor and keyboard/mouse in there? I will be good with about 100 fps?
