Question is in the title. Thinking about building a Minecraft gaming rig for my friend. I can get 30-80fps on Minecraft with a 2.2GHz AMD Athlon 64 3500+, so I know it doesn't take a very powerful PC. The build is not very refined yet. Just threw it together two minutes ago. I'm wondering if you can get Minecraft if I installed Ubuntu on it, or would I have to buy and install Windows? THANKS!!

Ok, thanks. And this PC should be able to run it very nicely, right?
