    You have no idea what you are talking about ohenryy. The CPU he has listed is an i7-7700k which was the highest performing Kaby Lake processor you could get a year ago. It will run any system out there, alongside ANY graphics card out there, at pretty much ANY level the graphics card is able to perform at depending on some settings.

    It's certainly NOT a "Quad core old CPU". It has 4 cores with 8 hyperthreads and will absolutely be overkill for a GTX 1050ti by a long shot.

    That being said, it's also more expensive than the i5-8400 on your build, has fewer physical cores than the i5-8400 and has absolutely no upgrade path. Likely the i5-8400 won't have one either, but that's not a definite fact yet.

    Regardless, between the two I'd have to agree that the i5-8400 is the better choice, except that the Z370 motherboards are more expensive since no lower tiered chipset boards are available yet for Coffee Lake.

    But he didn't ask what was cheaper or what we thought was the best build, he simply asked if that configuration would run minecraft, which is prettty laughable because it would actually run just about any game out there at 1080p if you moved a few sliders to the left.

    In spite of that though, if I was going to suggest a build, the very first thing I'd say it none of this matters so long as you have that case with the Raidmax power supply included because two days after he starts it up, if it lasts that long, the whole thing is probably going up in flames, or at least be taking a dirt nap. If you want to use that configuration as it stands, might as well just take a lighter to your 1200 dollars and be done with it. That could quite possibly be the worst power supply you could possibly buy, at any price that still carried a "known" name to it. Raidmax does not max power supplies, they make miniature fire hazards.

    This would be a FAR, FAR, FAR better option. And you won't destroy your hardware by using a cheap as hell power supply in the first place.

    Forget the Xonar soundcard, the Realtek ALC892 7.1 channel audio on this motherboard supports 24 bit audio same as that cheap soundcard does. If you want high end sound, save your money and buy a really decent one later. The forty bucks spent on that Xonar is simply a waste that really offers nothing more than the onboard audio provided by the Z370 Pro 4 does. Possibly less as the caps on the Pro4 likely provide better/lower electrical noise levels than most low to mid tiered audio solutions.

    There is too much to mention, but this is literally about 400% better than either of those builds in terms of quality, performance and longevity. And, a you'd be getting a MUCH higher quality case that actually offers some pretty decent features you definitely won't find on that silly Raidmax case.

    But it will it run 1080p shaders?
    Reply to henryccook
  5. Yes, it should not be a problem. Shaders in minecraft are simple mods, not complex. That build will play most any 1080p game you want to play, even difficult ones if you turns things down a bit, much less minecraft with mods, which is not particularly demanding at all.
