Ok, my brother wants a pc mostly for minecraft and other not so demanding games, but he's really cheap. I have said cpu and ram laying around and would like to know how well they would play minecraft with Windows 7 x64. Graphics card would be HD 5570.
And also, I upgraded my Phenom II heatsink and have the stuck one, will this fit on a 939 bracket?
I'd imagine he'd be fine like the others said. My old 3800 served me well for several years and upgraded to i5 at the start of the year. I upgraded for speedier video transcoding/audio work and have had a good boost, but for everyday tasks I'd be hard pushed to know the difference.
Not gaming much at the moment and I know the old cpu would struggle with modern stuff, but there again stuck with my old 7900gs for the time being so your brother is luckier than me lol
