I haven't done a proper FPS test, but I run...
BF4 at 1920 x 1080 at medium settings, and it runs at around 45 FPS according to the in-game benchmark.
FC3 is about 35 FPS.
* Skyrim at high settings with the 3 official texture packs is super smooth, same again at 45 FPS.
When I get round to doing some actual bechmarking (next week maybe), I shall let you know!
Haha, it's cool! It's a good case for cable management as it has tunnels(?) to thread the cables through behind the motherboard. This build shows how this case should be managed, as suggested by fnapoli: http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/b/EwE .
Glad to be of some help! Good luck with your build!
I don't consider myself a knowledgeable authority on computers, so my experience is only coming from an everyday user. I regularly play (now, as opposed to the intension of the build!), at 1920x1080, Skyrim on ultra and BF4 on medium, and have not come across any slowdown. But for the purposes of light gaming and Minecraft, I'd say the Athlon is more than enough for your needs, if it fulfils mine.
The case was really easy to work with and roomy. I bought it specifically because of the cable-management features at that price point. Also, the thumb screws make it really easy to open the case, if you're like me and really nosey about the inside.
You are a kind soul! But I did lurk this website for months beforehand; if anything, I have learnt that to skimp out on the PSU is to court the wrath of this website, and rightly so!
It has a steel mesh on the front which acts as a filter of sorts, but it's not as fine as the dust filter for the PSU. You can see it in this picture: http://imagescdn.tweaktown.com/content/5/5/5521_08_cooler_master_n200_chassis_review_full.jpg
I quite like the design. It's pretty sleek and simple, and the glossy black bar on the front panel is a nice touch, it's just a shame a small chunk is removed for the ODD, but could be worse. The front panel lights are white, so the white LED fan looks pretty sweet with it. It's a minor nag, but the front audio socket is pretty tight and I thought I was going to rip it out when I connect and disconnect my headphones. It's a pretty good case.
Well, in terms of your criteria I would say this case fulfils it, but being an absolute novice, I'm not sure how well this case performs with regards to cable management. This review is fairly comprehensive and pretty much sold it to me: http://www.tweaktown.com/reviews/5521/cooler-master-n200-chassis-review/index.html
It does actually come with a drive bay, but I removed it. You can see it here: http://www.coolermaster.com/images/upload/images/case/N200-2.jpg
That cable management is beautiful! I definitely need to spend more time on it. It was a tight fit against the side panel and bent the cable at a really awkward angle, but I'll try again.
Those were the provided mounts. I actually removed the cage which accommodates more drives. http://www.coolermaster.com/uploadfile/fileproduct_list/P1304160001703a/PRDPIC/13_51fcb436ef436135952a6c7330d99205_1366066083.jpg
The CPU is overclockable. I haven't researched enough into it to consider it, but I shall keep that in mind.
If I had seen that article a fortnight earlier I would've spent the extra pounds on the RAM. D: I shall add that in. And, yes, yes we do.
Blech, I forgot to mention OblyTile to make custom Windows 8 tiles. http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1899865
That's a fair point; I'll have to leave the SSD as a future upgrade.
