    Don't listen to these idiots. Get a current generation card. And a better power supply if you really do want to future-proof.

    The 260 and 4850 are older cards, which don't even support DirectX 11 fully. 6870 is for mid to high gaming on 1080p, while the 560Ti is for high to ultra (I guarantee it's not overkill).

    And go for at least a 600W power supply, with an 80Plus Bronze Rating. You don't want to skimp on a power supply, EVER.

    Pretty much this. Well said.

    Awesome i7 2600k beats atlon ii x4 645 by massive 0fps. You have to try harder (in dow2 bench we can somewhat significant diffrence in fps)

    Next thing you are going to do is say that I'm blind but you fail to see one minor little detail, monitors CAN'T display any fps over their refresh rate which usually is 60hz so that most monitors are capped at 60fps. Only 3d monitors are designed to show over 60fps.


    Could you post the chart that has that please, not sure which one you are talking about...

    Also, that's not exactly true, most computer monitors are 75Hz... (like mine) You also forget that the benchmarks are recorded on a hardware level. Even though you may not be able to see the difference it is still processing it faster.

    Do you mean this one?



    As well this is also stock speeds, the i5 2500k has a much greater overclocking ability, which can come in handy.

    Could you show game benchmarks were we excellence of i5 cpus over phenoms ii's? My brother has much inferior system compared op's wishlist (my bro has athlon x2 3ghz and gtx 260) and he capable of running all the games op listed (before edit) 60fps, maxed settings (sometimes over settings as he forces aa through nvidia panel) at 1680x1060. Only slowdowns happen in portal 2 were they use that paint.

    Why are buying/bought intel 2400/2500k if you are only doing "light" gaming? 2400/2500k is a ridiculous overkill for those games and it is propably enough powerfull to run those game all by itself.

    But answer to your question nvidia gtx 260. Used from ebay you can get it around 50$ or less.


    What? this is so incredibly false, without a proper GPU the build would just bog. As well the i5, is an excellent choice for gaming as it allows for multi-tasking, the i7 would be overkill because most applications aren't hyperthreaded.

    Also the Phenoms are also several years old and some are being beaten by OC'd i3's in benchmarks.

    It will run fine, 700 could almost be overkill, depending on the card you bought.

    posted a message on Quad-Core
    Quote from Eliasstrm

    What really matters when buying a processor is rendering power, wich is the more cores the better so a quad core (which only intel makes, unless you wanna buy the insane priced AMD Bulldozer). So my point is: a quad core i7 processor will do just fine. (sorry for the long post with a really short answer :tongue.gif:)


    Except bulldozers are one of the worst processors you can buy, an i3 beats it.

    Also the phenoms are quad core...

    Hi! I am gonna buy a new computer with a Core i7 Quad Core, but i want to know if Minecraft runs on all the 4 cores? Cuz i wanna know if Quad Core will help the game performance?


    Minecraft is single threaded, so it only uses one, however if you plan on multitasking buy a quad-core.

    I know, if you've read the last couple of posts, the price difference between 1600MHz RAM and 1333MHz was only $10. I never said there was a performance difference. In fact, the speeds are unnoticeable.


    Oh, sorry, if it's 10 bucks, ****ing go for it.

    Eh, go with the 1600 RAM, your money. Other than that, the build is far beyond excellent :biggrin.gif:


    Meh, not that important, in terms of benchmarks i.e. gaming, it makes very little difference.

    Yeah, but I still might upgrade this fall when I have a good chunk of change. I am sick of having stuff that can just run minecraft and not even that well.


    Then buy a higher watt PSU now, then you don't have to upgrade later and waste money,

    Quote from Wolley74

    sorry for hopping in late here but do you have any way to record what it sounds like? maybe upload like a 15 second clip of youtube, might narrow it down but google has failed so far >.<


    maybe it could be a wire inside the power supply getting hit by the PSU fan?


    I doubt the former, but it is a valid suggestion.

    Look inside the PSU with a flashlight, see if you see that, or any blown caps. inside the PSU as well.

    Like if I throw in a 6670 and put it in hybrid mode?
    Or a 6790?


    Pretty much, however you would want to run off just one for the most part.

    MacBooks are good for minecraft though I'm on a mac and it works like a charm :Diamond: but why did you sell your mac?


    Ehh, for what they are not really, if they have Intel graphics, just like a PC it can suck. It's all dependent on hardware, and it's cheaper to buy a PC for the most part.
