That PC has more than enough power to record Minecraft videos on. You'll be just fine.

Hi there, thank you for coming back to me on this. Is it below or better than the specs Mojang recommend? Sorry, all of the specs they have noted on the link don’t make any sense to me.

its the newest update or Minecraft I’m interested in, as that takes up so much power to run, I’m just so worried about spending the money and it not being what I needed.

It's much better than what they recommend. I did a comparison between the Ryzen CPU that PC has and the CPU that Mojang recommends. As you can see, your Ryzen has a score of nearly double what the recommended CPU has.

As for your graphics card, it'll handle Minecraft recordings fine. I have a 1050 Ti, which is a model less powerful than the 1060 that comes with the PC that you're looking at, and I can record the game at several hundred FPS without any issues.

I use a GTX 1080, which is a bit of an overkill for Minecraft but that's because I play other resource-heavy games too.

Should you decide to buy the PC that you were looking at, a GTX 1060 3GB is more than sufficient to play and record Minecraft at well above 100 fps.
