Need a PC to run minecraft 200+ FPS recorded, med-max settings, on generally high res packs, with discord and google chrome open. With 14 PvP mods

So, as this really long title suggests, I need a PC that can run Minecraft 1.7.10 with about 14-15 PvP mods installed, on 32-256x packs, recorded, medium to max settings, with discord, multiple google chrome tabs open, paint.net, and some files open, all at 200-500+ fps. And although it isn't that important to me, I would prefer an intel prossesor, and I DEFINETLY WANT TO BUILD THIS. My budget is around 400-750 US Dollars, and I need for this to be figured out before December of 2017, any later, unless I say otherwise, is pointless. I bet you're thinking that anything over 60-75 fps is pointless, but I need it if I want shaders, and if I lag spike, I can't visually notice. PcPartPicker would be the most convenient for me, and thanks!

Why do you want to run the game at an FPS so high? To ensure it never falls below 60?

Guys thank you so much! I have a lot to work with, and more suggestions are always welcome! Btw, some ppl are suggesting AMD processors, and some Intel, any fanboi s of either, please describe why either AMD or Intels are better.

If you're doing anything more than just gaming, there isn't a reason to go Intel right now. AMD's new processors trade a little bit of game performance for either a massively lower price or significantly more productivity performance (streaming, rendering, etc.).

Ok, thanks! I know absolutely nothing about AMD, what AMD processors correspond with which Intel i series processors as of preformance range?

Ex. i3=____
i5=____
i7=_____
i9=______

This just barely fits your $750 budget, and it'll do everything you're looking for.

If you want to double your budget, as stated in one of your comments, you could get something like this:

Please note that I've restricted my merchant list to only include Amazon, Newegg, and a few others. Part prices may be lower at other retailers, but the merchants I include make things like shipping and tax costs visible to PCPP, making it easier to plan a build for a certain budget.

What would the second one do that would want me to spend that extra money?

The CPU has 8C/16T compared to the first build's 4C/8T, and the graphics card is close to twice as fast. The extra CPU cores will help you do heavy multitasking (streaming, rendering while playing a game, etc.), and the better GPU does exactly what you'd think. :)

Additionally:
  • Better case
  • Better power supply
  • Doubled SSD and HDD storage
  • Doubled RAM
  • Slightly better motherboard

If anyone says you need 5 grand for a computer that meets your expectations, they don't know what they're talking about. This is Minecraft at 1080p 200+ FPS with 256 Sphax on a shader a friend and I are working on, the system this was benchmarked on was a $1000 laptop with a mobile 3 gig 1060.
Here's a screenshot for proof (full res)

Ok, I see that my budget is a bit low for my expectations, so if you feel necessary, double that.

You should chance your budget to $5000-$10000. Then you can buy a PC like that.

You're kidding right? A 1060 can get that performance out of Minecraft with shaders, you do not need that much money. Mine is only $1,700 and gets better performance than that. Do you really know enough of what you're talking about to be able to suggest this stuff? Because your hardware recommendations would nowhere near reach the 5 grand you suggested, that's just ridiculous. I know PCs are expensive and Minecraft is poorly optimized but you're either trolling to make this guy spend more money than he needs to or you're just not intelligent.

You are right.

But i exaggerate sometimes.

I did help with good spec options.

A nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti for graphics card.
A Intel i7 quad core for processer.
You will have to find the rest.

Got a few thousand laying around? Just pick the most expensive PC you can find and you might almost meet your expectations (not guaranteed). Good luck.
