    Thanks @Lataren915!

    I feel better about getting this computer now :D

    Do you have this computer? Would you recommend it? Thanks again!
    I built my computer, I wouldn't suggest anything less if you're interested in I.T., you will learn so much and be able to answer questions like this, I'd suggest these parts if you do make a computer
    CPU: AMD FX-8350 (8 cores @ 4.0GHz)
    CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO (Best CPU cooler on the market if you exclude water cooling which is mainly for overclockers who get a new computer each year)
    GPU: Sapphire 270 or Sapphire 270X DUAL-X or VAPOR-X, (TOXIC is for overclockers who get a new computer each year).
    Case: What looks good BUT it really should be picked last and make sure it can fit all your parts, have a look at the Cooler Master Storm Scout Adv. 2 which comes in two colours: white and "gunmetal grey"
    (I'm almost offended to find my auto correct thinks 'colour' is spelt wrong and as I am writing this it thinks spelt is wrong too!!)

    Spend $100 more, get PC that is so, so much better. Even has the red colour scheme that you love. OS on /r/SoftwareSwap or similar. (Motherboard is.... ehhh.... but it matches your colour scheme and runs the PCIe x16 slots at 8x for xfire for a reasonable amount of money.)An SSD wouldn't go astray, but it's not really all that essential.PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / BenchmarksCPU: Intel Core i5-4670K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($222.00 @ Amazon)CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($29.98 @ OutletPC)Motherboard: ASRock Fatal1ty Z87 Killer ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($99.99 @ Newegg)Memory: Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($69.99 @ Newegg)Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($56.99 @ NCIX US)Video Card: Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 2GB Video Card (2-Way CrossFire) ($207.40 @ Amazon)Video Card: Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 2GB Video Card (2-Way CrossFire) ($207.40 @ Amazon)Case: NZXT Phantom 410 (Red) ATX Mid Tower Case ($83.99 @ Mwave)Power Supply: Corsair Professional 750W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($89.99 @ Newegg)Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24F1ST DVD/CD Writer ($14.99 @ Newegg)Monitor: AOC E2260SWDN 60Hz 21.5" Monitor ($99.99 @ Newegg)Keyboard: Cooler Master CM Storm Quick Fire TK Wired Gaming Keyboard ($87.63 @ Amazon)Mouse: Logitech G500s Laser Gaming Mouse Wired Laser Mouse ($49.99 @ Best Buy)Total: $1320.33(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)(Generated by PCPartPicker 2014-04-14 22:53 EDT-0400)(2x 270X in crossfirex is more powerful than a single Titan in most modern games, FYI. I have 2x OCed 7870s in xfire and can run BF4 at 100+ fps on ultra & Crysis 3 at 50+ fps also on ultra. No microstutter either, drivers a few months ago fixed that.)
    I cannot go past this post without killing myself for saying don't get that CPU, get a AMD FX-8350 which has 8 cores @ 4.0 GHz and I could find one for ~$200 USD, beat THAT!
    You would need a different motherboard, although, but that too can easily be fixed.
    Ask me where to find some of the parts you will buy and I most likely can find them somewhere to buy them cheaper, even if you live somewhere that isn't in the U.S.

    Quote from SkyLoftian_Link

    Stop commenting here. You do not know a single thing about a GPU. Minecraft's performance is completely random.
    No it is not, Minecraft's performance is based on many factors but the main component to Minecraft is if the OpenGL is up to date or not, most cards could deal with Minecraft if it had such software installed.
    And I think it is you who knows nothing about a GPU because knowing about any piece of computing forces you to know about things about software and if you did so you would know that A. nothing is random B. everything is uniform unless uniformly told not to do so which makes it uniform once more.

    Power explanation:
    The voltage (V) is measured in Volts.
    The current (I) is measured in Amperes or Amps for short.

    The resistance (r) is measured in Ohms.
    The voltage is equivalent to the water pressure, the current is equivalent to the flow rate, and the resistance is like the pipe size.
    There is a basic equation in electrical engineering that states how the three terms relate. It says that the current is equal to the voltage divided by the resistance.

    I hope you understand power now, all that really matters in a power supply is:
    The watts
    The plugs
    The
    efficiency (how much power is turned into useful power instead of just heat and sound)
    If it is modular which means that the plugs can be taken out to save room inside your case and allow for better airflow, trust me, non modular power supplies are hard to deal with!
    Anything else they throw at you doesn't matter in reality.

    For AMD chipsets, look for Sapphire cards. For nVida chipsets, look for EVGA cards
    A R9 270 or R9 270X is very good right now, this one I just found on eBay may be useful.

    They can play Battlefield 4 (Awesome game) at 1080p with all settings at Ultra without any lag with a high frame rate (Although you can only see up to 60 on a normal screen and 144 on the BEST screen :P)

    Note that at the moment, AMD are giving away a Battlefield 4 Gift card on most of their cards (R9 270/X) is one of which but if buying used, they may have taken said code.

    I'd get a Bukkit jar from here for the Bukkit team are dedicated on those builds whereas the Minecraft.net team are spread between Minecraft, the launcher, the website, the server (Skins ect.) and all their other games.

    Furthermore, you can get these cool things called plugins which can do lots of functions and even change Minecraft physics! For example, one could stop some people from breaking your new house, keeping the sun in the sky or breaking leaves when you break the last log, and so much more!

    posted a message on Ultra's Hosting Pre-Comparison Thread
    Hello Minecrafters

    My name is UltraFire (Soon to be UltraFireFX!)


    Now, as we all know Minecraft is a very fun and interesting game, and it is even more fun and interesting when played with others on servers!
    you have probably played Multiplayer once before (or should try it ASAP!) and you probably had lots of fun!

    You see, I wanted to start my own server and I did lots of research about server hosting and I found out that running the server locally on my laptop was not going to work well at all, so I had to look for other methods of hosting my server...

    I found out that If you can't host a server locally or you want better performance you will need a hoster. There are so many choices out there that it is quite a daunting task for new people to pick a host for their server. I had to look through lots, and when I say lots, I mean LOTS, of servers.
    There were many Minecraft server hosts but it was hard to compare and decide which was best for MY needs because at the end of the day, everyone is different...

    So after lots of looking and getting not very far at all I made a little comparison chart of server hosts on a document file that I could use to easily compare the hosts.

    When I was hunting for servers, a guild like this would have been great to compare servers to my needs!

    That is why I am making a server comparison guild. I want to make it as accurate as I can and so I need many server hosts to compare and share...

    Now of course I can't get ALL the server hosts myself so I am asking you guys to post in this thread what you think of my idea, server hosts you think I should compare, things I should compare between hosts and where the thread should go!

    I will not discriminate against hosts (say if I do!) but merely point out the good a bad aspects of the host itself.


    Thanks you for reading this thread and i'll post a link to the other one here once its out!

    Also checkout my website at www.arcanepvp.enjin.com and donate so I can get my server running!

    Regards,
    UltraFireFX
