New Build Idea for Mid-High range Gaming


Nov 16, 2012

I have posted a previous thread asking about builds with an FX cpu, but I've been thinking about a build including a slightly worse cpu but better Gpu. Thank You For All Your Input, and here are my ideas. Also, will this build get 200+ Fps on minecraft Max settings?

Cpu: Amd Phenom x6 1045T 105$

Mobo:MSI 990FXA-GD80V2 Motherboard 160$

Gpu:XFX FX-775A-ZNP4 AMD Radeon HD 7750 Core Edition Video Card 100$

Ram: Patriot G2 Series 8GB (2x4) 40$

Hard Drive: WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB Desktop Hard Drive 80$

Psu:Coolmax ZU Series ZU-700B Power Supply 700 watt 50$

Case:Thermaltake VM30001W2Z V4 Black Edition Mid Tower Gaming Case 35$

If there's anything I've missed please feel free to tell me. :D Total=570$
P.S I would also like some feedback if this is a good build or not? ;)


Your build looks reasonable, if you have no intention to overclock, get a 500W RELIABLE PSU such as XFX or seasonic as big said. I have a Pentium 4 and GeForce 210 and get ~40 fps on mc? I dont see the reason for 200+ fps but your build will run it smooth.
I would suggest a phenom 2 x4 965be and a 7770. I get about 180 fps in minecraft with all settings up.

A 7750 will run modern games on low/medium settings. Minecraft is a very easy game to max out.

If you want high settings you will have to spring for a 7770 at the minimum and that will only be medium/high settings in most games.

The 7750 is a pretty weak card.
