My sister needs a new PC. Never played Minecraft so I don't know how demanding it is, although it doesn't look like it needs very much.

If this is overkill, how much cheaper can I make it while keeping Intel and Nvidia.
Am I a llama that thieves, or a pilferer of llamas? You may never know.

MC doesn't take much on the GPU side of things but it's actually pretty demanding on the CPU side, especially if you play with modpacks like FTB. I had to OC my 3570k to 4.4ghz for a solid 60 FPS. There's also no real "Highest settings" for it, you can always push it harder, whether that's getting a higher res texture pack, increasing the draw distance (On the furthest draw distance with Optifine I only get like 20 FPS in an otherwise vanilla install), adding shaders, etc etc.

This would be a very solid start, I'm gonna check newegg though because in this price range and for this task you can probably do better by buying a prebuilt and just adding a GPU to it.

E: No prebuilt deals worth bothering with on newegg currently. You could get an i3 3220 system and add the same GPU I linked there into it and still be in the $500ish range but I don't think it would be worth it since I can't make any guarantees on the PSU.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there
