I am planning on ordering parts and building a computer.
However, I need to double check and see if everything is compatible with one another, so I don't end up wasting money. ALSO: If you know that some of these parts are bad/unnecessary, then please reply! Also, any other help, tips, or recommendations are appreciated!

Randomness3333Its not worth it to have 6 gbs of RAM. It would end up costing more than getting 8gbs.

Then I will stick with 4GB of ram. I can always get more later.

4GB will be perfectly fine for you. Good luck with you new computer.

Thanks for your help!

Randomness3333If you are only playing minecraft an APU build would be your best option.

This will easly run minecraft at max setting with 60+ fps plus it will do good in other games.

This is cheaper but will still be fine for Minecraft. It won't be as good for other games as my other build though.

Video card?

He has an APU so he doesn't need a separate video card.


Is it possible to have 6GB? If not I will stick with 4GB. I might be able to get more later if necessary.

That is a good build other than the PSU. That PSU isn't 80+ certified so i'd get this one instead: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6817139026

The motherboard you choose only has 2 RAM slots o you wouldn't be able to get 6gbs of RAM. You would have to get three 2 GB RAM sticks for that.

Supernova666I suggest you go to your local computing store, many people here claim to know what they're on about when in fact they do not.
Dell Optiplex 755
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0Hz
4GB DDR2 RAM
250 GB Hard Drive (SATA)
DVD-RW drive
Radeon 2400XT (Dual monitor/256MB)

This for example is not exactly up to date technology.

I won't give you specific components, but Computer Planet is very good website/company with excellent customer service (from personal experience). As you are looking for something under $400 I suggest going into a local computer store or looking at a refurbished computer as you'll find very little for under $400 - most people who are looking to build their own PC will be spending more than $400.


Yeah, I noticed. I'm stuck between saving money and doing something on my own,

+1 to Randomness' build.

Also, for future reference, use http://pcpartpicker.com/ to collect and review components as they have a large list of components and it will tell you if the components are compatible and the estimated wattage the system will produce.

The link for your hard drive is the link to the PSU. adding a 1tb hard drive brings the total up to around 360$. If you plan on doing any gaming you will need a way better gpu than a 5450. This will destroy your current build for only 40$ more:

I plan on using this computer for Minecrafting and basic usage.
402$ is a bit pricy however not including the operating system. I plan to have 4-6GB ram. The processor and motherboard is a good choice however, and so is the case.
