300-400 fps is going to be kind of useless because you can only see as many hertz as your monitor produces, if you get a 144hz monitor for minecraft it's going to be a bit sad but, you'll be able to see 144 FPS. You don't need to spend 800-1000 dollars to play minecraft by any means.

A lot of people like more FPS than their monitor has Hertz. Many CS:GO players like 300+ FPS.

It still does not change the fact that it makes absolutely no difference in your experience...

Higher FPS means less input lag. Not too important for Minecraft, but it certainly matters a whole lot to other people, especially in other games.

That's because they aren't equivalent. RX 480's are supposed to compete with 1060's, not 1050 ti's.

A GTX 1050 to will do just fine in Minecraft. I get, believe it or not, 1000fps in Minecraft and I have a GTX 1050 ti. However, the GPU is not future-proof. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

Yeah, to be honest, Minecraft is pretty Nvidia based, but I don't know which performs better in MINECRAFT, GTX 1050 Ti or RX 470. A RX 470 would be better in overall gaming tho.

Anyway, didnt really appreciate the childish insult and also maybe your friend has optifine? Fact is a 300-400$ PC can easily run Minecraft at around 100fps which is pretty good. save the extra 700 or so for upgrades or games if you ever get bored of minecraft <3

This is essentially Snaja's build, but I dropped the SSD and added the GTX 1060 6GB. It'll get you better FPS when playing Minecraft. It's ~$100 more, so I'm not sure it's worth it - you could easily allocate that money somewhere else - CPU, SSD, etc. Minecraft is a more CPU intensive game, but will benefit greatly from the GPU.

I'd personally pick the 1060 over the 480, as NVidia is better for Minecraft than AMD.

  • 36 months ago

If you were looking for a cheaper card, I guess I'd go with the RAdeon RX 480. NVidia has slightly better performance with minecraft, but it isn't enough to put the 1050Ti over the 480.

  • 36 months ago

You don't necessarily need one. The processor I put on the list is a locked processor, meaning you cannot overclock it. So you don't really need anything better than the stock cooler which comes in the box. It'll be a bit loud, but it'll do an alright job unless where you live is really hot or you don't clean it semi- regularly.

You do realize that 300-400 fps is literally so fast that the human eye wouldn't be able to see the difference between that and probably around 150fps right? You could spend 500 dollars and get a pc that runs Minecraft at 100+ fps. Don't waste your money on a 1000 dollar pc to only play Minecraft and surf the web with

  • 36 months ago

There's definitely a difference. That's why you see a lot of top level DOTA and CS:GO players turning settings down so they can get ~400FPS.

  • 36 months ago
  • -1 points

no you can research it the human eye can only see up to 200 bud

  • 36 months ago
  • 2 points

That isn't how any of it works...There has nothing done to show that there is a max FPS we can see which likely isn't a thing since we don't see in Hz.

  • 36 months ago
  • 1 point

It is not a max that we can see but it is indiscernible to the human eye once you start getting into the 300-400 area. Give it try yourself play something at 150 fps and then at 400 I can guarantee you won't be able to tell the difference what so ever.

  • 36 months ago
  • 1 point

You would need a 400Hz monitor to test that theory and there isn't one out there. You would also need a monitor over 144Hz to see 150FPS.

  • 36 months ago

http://www.pcgamer.com/how-many-frames-per-second-can-the-human-eye-really-see/

and plus it wouldn't matter, for a 700 dollar budget like this guy has, he couldn't even afford a monitor that displays anywhere close to that. But again, it doesn't matter because the human eye literally doesn't see that fast.

  • 36 months ago
  • 1 point

But... You can see more tham 150FPS however I do agree on maybe a 300-500$ PC for minecraft anyway, It all depends on refresh rate of monitor if your getting FPS in the 100's.

  • 36 months ago
  • -3 points

This build should be more than enough for Minecraft. You could even cut down the price by about 100 dollars (U.S.), If you needed to. You definitely do not need an i5 for running Minecraft because it is not CPU intensive whatsoever. This build will easily pull 150 to 200 FPS plus on Minecraft. It includes a monitor. [REMOVED]
