More about : run minecraft JefferyD90 July 18, 2012 7:21:26 PM First off, minecraft would be fine on just about anything... What is the budget your wanting to spend? dudewitbow a b B Homebuilt system July 18, 2012 7:24:23 PM the 250 should be better(albeit the whole system is still sorta on the weak side, as the gpu is even weaker than hd2000 integrated graphics) Related resources CPU That can run Minecraft at 60FPS - Forum can this computer run dayz and minecraft mods? - Forum Will this PC run minecraft at 120 or up and record at 60 or up? - Forum Can I run minecraft with this cpu? - Forum Will this computer run minecraft? - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Well I would do this, Motherboard: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... 49.99 CPU: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... 59.99 RAM: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/ite... 14.99 This is right above your price range, and I would look for 2 sticks of RAM, but overall this is a good build that will give you some decient performance. You might be able to find all of this on ebay at the right price. TOTAL: $124.97 dudewitbow a b B Homebuilt system July 18, 2012 8:52:59 PM @above, hes from UK. tigerdirect i dont think ships to UK JefferyD90 July 18, 2012 9:31:37 PM Once again, its a refrence... he was also going to buy the stuff on EBay... math1337 July 18, 2012 9:38:03 PM Ask for more money. Other than that, try to get a phenom if you can find a cheap one. Minecraft really hurts the CPU. JefferyD90 July 18, 2012 9:52:47 PM I would go with a APU honestly, Phenoms would be a little overkill for minecraft... Any of the A6's could handle it, and I think a A4 could as well. jonno121 July 18, 2012 11:44:06 PM Thanks for suggestions guys, i will try get him to bump up the budget for me lol Can't find your answer ?
