Looking for a PC that runs Minecraft on high settings with no lag as well as browse, download, etc. things from the internet smoothly. The cheaper the better, any help would be great, thanks!

Budget would be around 350-400 but the cheaper the better! /// Location: US so currency would be the same, USD /// Monitor, keyboard, etc not required /// OS would hopefully be Windows 10 if possible

However, if you can spend a little extra, you can get a better chip

Definitely going to look into the lists you sent, maybe even stretch for the more expensive chip because I want this computer to be something I want that lasts as well. Thank you for the help I really appreciate it! Hopefully I will be purchasing one soon.

No problems, glad to help

Oh, and if you want the most performance out of your tiny budget, get a refurbished desktop and throw a GTX 1050TI in it (it’ll be much more powerful than the APU chips, and you’ll also have the capacity to run some heavier titles as well)

There is a BIOS issue, and not sure if they want to deal with that.
