I'm thinking about building this PC. I only want to play Minecraft and TF2 (simple lower-res games) I was wondering if this would be any better than my current laptop and could it play minecraft on Max or High settings?


- Xigmatek CCM-35ABX-U01 Case

- MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 FM2 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

- AMD A6-5400K Trinity 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 65W Dual-Core Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7540D AD540KOKHJBOX CPU

- Basix 400w PSU

- 4GB RAM: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008CP5Q7M/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 <- that kind

I got it from here

My Current laptop:
Gateway windows 8 NE56R31u

is it worth it?

Yes, you can play Minecraft with playable(30fps+) fps on High setting. Your build is better than or old laptop.

You can use this link to check which game is playable and which is not. http://community.futuremark.com/hardware/gpu/AMD+Radeon+HD+7540D/games
An older version of AMD A6 processor vs Intel Celeron B830

Don't use Minecraft as a benchmark. Use something like BF2 as that takes a lot of power. Minecraft and PC is suitable to play.

Well, almost any computer can run minecraft, seeing that it doesn't hog down ram, doesn't require the best processor, and doesn't need an insane graphics card. I would say that computer could run minecraft pretty smoothly, and possibly some other games.
