Unless he is using shaders mod or a graphically demanding mod he does not need a GPU. The integrated graphics will be fine. A Pentium will be enough because Minecraft only uses single core performance.
If he does want to use shaders a GTX 970 is a good choice
Awesome. I'll watch (only if you win)
Yeah they are
It's your choice. You can get one with it to unlock the full potential of Gsync but you can also still use Gsync even without a Gsync monitor. If your doing fast shooter games I would recommend it but if not you don't really need it. it is your choice ( I have never used Gsync before )
agreed, but on the bright side it does not make enough of a difference to make them cost that much, you'll be fine without. :)
I get that but its going to be a bit slow I'd recommend adding a GPU to get those 60 fps.
Even a 950
A Pentium CPU and the IGPU will do. No need for a graphics card with Minecraft.
Of course. The 6950x for example only is 3.0 Ghz, but has 10 cores so better for multi core performance. The 6700k has only 4 cores but each at 4.0 Ghz so it is better for gaming. Each processor has there own purpose, so what you want to do with it will depend on which processor you get.
Oh ok I created one with birth date as hidden.
You can ask them of you can create a twitter account, make it and then if you win just ask them to answer the phone. You don't need to put in ID or Social security number. Just get the permission and certification of help needed :)
It is not 18+ because they want to prohibit kids from this giveaway, its because technically money is involved so parental permission is required so no 5 year olds accidentally make purchases :P
(probably not the reason)
Thank you. I already chose the H440 :)
yup all good :)
Some more pics pls
I am fine with the 6700k honestly, but really I spent no time on optimizing the list because I thought it ended today :P
What I really should have done was an 850w PSU and an SLI 1080 :(
But really I'm fine with what I have :) (probably not going to win anyway)
Nice but a broadwell-e processor will be better.
Also I'd recommend a better PSU from EVGA or Corsair
much better option
But I'm sure the 6700K is decent
You already sent it.
Sorry if you did that you cannot change it :(
too late :(
already sent it
Gaming, also Graphics and 3d render,
Agreed, those are the ones I chose
Yes you can just ask your parents :)
Well I guess I should up mine then
Here is mine: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/hKBmD8
I want it white/black
This is a really nice build, very close in terms of parts of what I would buy for my upcoming PC.
I do agree with Eltech that it is a clean build with a great choice of parts and accessories ( I love the K70+G502 Combo In my opinion )
This is certainly a very good build and I hope it lasts you long
Build looks awesome. I love the custom sleeved cables. The MOBO, CPU cooler and GPU at just the right theme for the PC
+1111 for looking great
EDIT: I also like the LED fans :)
If you win it it's free. I think you can splurge a bit
Entering FTW :)
Nice budget PC.
A GPU will definitely improve performance. I'd recommend something like this: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/sXkwrH/powercolor-radeon-rx-460-2gb-red-dragon-video-card-axrx-460-2gbd5-dhoc
only $110 so very affordable with still better performance than the Intel HD 530
Oh okay cant be that then
Hmmm... You never know, one zap of ESD from the original owner failing to ground him/herself can significantly damage and slow down the GPU, even if it looks in perfect shape, that's probably why they sold it for only $150 (not even that cheap).
I'm not saying that is the cause of the poor performance, just be careful choosing the right one
Weird, my 2.2 ghz laptop can play minecraft with shaders at 50 fps stable at med-high settings.
Did you install minecraft correctly?
How about your GPU drivers.
You may have a faulty GPU which then I would RMA for a new one ( The only thing I can think of if not the ones above).
I know right..wtf....
An RX 470 is like 2 times slower than the 1070. That's basically saying "here, a just as expensive but much slower PC, because you don't need it"
It has a 1060 though. The last thing you want to do Is bump down the graphics card.
I'd recommend that list having a 1070 like his list and switch the monitor to a 60hz Ips. you can OC monitors to about 90hz anyway
Used for "Light gaming"
Has a GeForce GTX 1070.
nice build job :)
Alright. No probs
Ok. Would you like me to find something else?
It's under 100 and has a lot of LED's
EDIT: It also has blue LED fans :)
Sorry about that, got comments from everywhere. Yours is actually the most promising since you brought up things like PWM fan hub and metal build because I thought they were plastic :P . Others just said go with a Phanteks enthoo Pro case which I find ugly.
EDIT: found it. its lake Louise in Alberta Canada. I have been there. it's very pretty.
How big is it?
Does it look good?
How is the cable management?
Is it a better choice than the 750d?
Thanks in advance.
Wow. Thank you so much. I think I will get the h440 then. Sounds like a great case. I saw the 750d once and I found it rather gaudy but maybe that was because it was used alot.
Ok thanks. I don't mind spending a bit more money on a case so I will get the h440. I find the Phanteks Pro m Acryllic a rather ugly case
I said I don't care that the 750D is $149 bucks I just want to know which one is a better case overall.
Here's my list: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/MannyPCs/saved/YTZtt6
Ok thx. What's better about it though?
Oh ok. awesome, thanks for the info ill look in
