can someone help me i want to build a desktop for 400-450$
The things i want to use it for are
Minecraft on max settings and lego digital designer
Requirements for lego digital designer are
Operating system: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8.
CPU: 1 GHz processor or higher
Graphics card: 128 MB graphics card (OpenGL 1.1 or higher compatible)
RAM: 512 MB
Hard disk space: 1 GB
i have a keyboard,mouse and monitor already so i just need the computer
I know that I'm probably going to get flak for this, however, I'm going to say just go ahead and buy a desktop (not a laptop!) and it will work fine. In this price range, you can sometimes (usually) get more for your money in my experience. Now, if you already have some of the parts and an OS of your choice, you can probably find a really solid build that will get you the performance you want in your budget. Just remember, if you plan on playing Minecraft at max settings, try and find a computer with a dedicated or discrete GPU and Minecraft will fly--the requirements aren't that heavy. I can get 60 FPS on normal settings on Intel HD Graphics and a Pentium, and pretty much unlimited FPS on anything higher than that (dedicated).
Also The most important thing about minecraft is that you allocate RAM to JAVA, so get atleast 4gb of ram and give 2 of it to minecraft. If you can get 8Gb if not its okay
If you give more RAM to Minecraft it will run allot smoother .
