Hi, so i need a new computer i've had this one for about 6 years and it's terrible and i can't stand using it anymore


The things i want to use it for are playing minecraft on max settings and maybe some other games in the future.

Approximate Purchase Date: Tonight or tomorrow

Budget Range: Approx. 570$, Can't go any higher then it is right now unless it absolutely has to.

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Gaming,Internet,Videos

Are you buying a monitor: No

Do you need to buy OS: No

Preferred Websites for Parts: Tigerdirect.com, newegg.com, Amazon.com,Ncix.com

Overclocking: maybe(Not very likely though)

Spec wise it is on par with your just cheaper and the case I believe only has 1 case fan, but those are cheap you can buy a 4 pack for 10 bucks if you really wanted. Newegg has more info on fans that can take. The website says there may be an issue with the motherboard and cpu, motherboard supporting ivy bridge from what I gathered on the newegg reviews it seems it supports it right out of the box so you should be good.
