Questions About Custom Build.

I am a student in high school and am looking to build my firs computer. I have been looking around for a few days and have put together all of the necessary parts. I want to be able to play different games on it, including Minecraft (which mainly uses memory/RAM). I have found nice equipment for a low price of around 750. Is there anything I should change to my set up?

    Broken Link. This will suit your need, it will run Minecraft on 100+ FPS and any game on max-high settings.

  2. ^ Much better build and is complete, yours didnt have a PSU or motherboard.

    Though I would advise swapping in this RAM.

    And this case.

  3. Why that certain RAM?
  4. Low profile so it wont conflict with large heatsinks and cheaper.
  5. So, this would be the best computer for Minecraft (guaranteed 100+ fps?) and everyday use?

    New to this and not very familiar with the best brands.

  6. I think you should swap out the mobo this.

    You have the room in the case and the room in the budget, might as well use it.

    This 7870 has better cooling on it, while also being a bit cheaper (if you ignore the rebate)

    Other than that your all set.
  7. Thanks so much for all of this help. It really helped
