an ssd is not something that necessary its what you have in a mid and above range build. for light gaming like that something like a 7750 would be good minecraft is mostly cpu bound anyways. with dropping the ssd i would say bump to an i3 and 8gbs of ram the x4 is more of a gaming cpu.

do you think an i3 would be better? would it be able to multitasking with ease?
