I hope someone can help me. My young step son is a massive Minecraft fan, and has his heart set on a desktop computer. He wants a computer that will allow him to record (using Camtasia or some such recording software) at around 30fps. His old laptop only gives him around 15fps at best when recording. He gets around 20fps when playing normally.
I have been trying to research specs on a computer that will do this, but seeing what's out there, I realize how much I have been out of the computer hardware game as none of it makes any sense now.
I also have a tight budget, somewhere around the $250 mark. I've been looking at refurbished desktops on ebay and Walmart trying to see if anything would be able to do a job.
Does anyone here have any ideas or suggestions as to what would be the best way to go for this money. I fear that for this amount, we're not going to get anywhere near the fps he wants.
