The map loading is close to instant with this setup as a whole. Minecraft clients and servers are single threaded applications, not multithreaded. When buying a processor to run Minecraft or Minecraft servers, always get one that has the best single core/thread performance possible.
Perhaps. Let me know what you want specifically, and I'll make something according to the budget that you have.
It does that at the cost of higher power consumption. I'm going to a low power build here. I'll consider it though.
You're better off building a budget PC off of here. PERSONALLY - I would go the Intel route mainly due to single core performance, which games like PUBG tend to favor. Intel has their pros and cons. I would say that the pros outweigh the cons.
EDIT: I don't know how creditable this YouTube video is, but here is someone playing PUBG with an Intel i3 and a 750 Ti. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZrXYwglZ8cc
I knew someone would ask that - I got the processor for a reduced price from a friend after I purchased the board. I don't intend to keep it. I'll be downgrading to the 7600.
Don't worry about it! :)
Thank you very much for the submission!
"Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): Not applicable"
That means no. Hehe.
I need to keep this puppy rack mounted and small though.
I did end up making this, but only bought one of those 2 RAM sticks, giving my system 16GB of RAM total.
That processor is equipped with 4 threads, so it can run at least 8 servers with no issues. I run 7 servers at once off of it and I have 0 issues.
This machine is DEDICATED to Minecraft only, and I have never dropped below 19.50 TPS on any of my servers.

Thank you for the submission.
Noice. First attempt, off to a good start.
No problem, thank you for commenting and attempting!
I have some Dell PowerEdge R710's that could be used for this. They are good servers though, and don't really need to be used for such a petty task.
That's why I would rather have this as a set-and-forget kind of a rig. You know?
I just want something that I can remote into and do work on it if I need to, but can still handle the processes with ease.
Not a very big difference. I have another thread where someone asked me to make this thread to see if this same build could be done with an Xeon.
I just want to see if it was even possible, especially at this price range.
That 1TB drive is only there for network things, like backups, archives of stuff, and some custom things.
I am a small time Java developer with a ton of custom content. The drive is going to hold years of things.
This machine is purely dedicated for my gaming MC network ONLY.
I have rack servers for all of my other projects. :P
To be honest, I think the CPU is fine for what I really need right now. It's packed with 4 threads, and each Miecraft instance runs off of a single thread. I will divide the servers two to a thread.
The clock speed on this chip is more than enough to keep the servers running efficiently.
I wonder if this new Pentium chip can even be overclocked?
Thank you for the comment.
The massive amount of RAM is there for such reasons; the processor will be upgraded immediately if there are any bottlenecks.
Well, I can confidentially say that this server is more than able to handle over 250 players before problems start to occur.
Minecraft is primarily CPU intensive, and less RAM intensive. Depending on your setup, more RAM can be useful. Each instance of a Minecraft server runs off of a single thread. There are 4 threads with my selected processor, and it is upgradeable in the future if I ever need more horse power for my gaming community.
I will be running Ubuntu Server with a 25 server multicraft license. This machine should be able to handle it just fine.
WHERE'S THE MESS?
WHERE'S THE MESS?
For your budget, this is a fine first build.
No problem. Glad I could help.
I think I will be going with this build. It has great performance per dollar.
You can make a Hackintosh with an AMD chipset and board... It's just a little harder. I made a Hackintosh with an AMD FX-8350 and MSI 970 Gaming board.
Here is one of the first links on Google: http://www.hackintosh.zone/forums/topic/5387-how-i-installed-os-x-yosemite-1010-amd-cpu/
Thank you for the submission!
Are you sure? I have had some pretty bad experiences with the A10 chips.
I feel like a bot continuously saying, "Thank you for the submission!"
No it won't.
Thank's. This build is completely irrelevant to the one I have now. I am always fluctuating computers.
To be honest, I have never seen a GTX 750 ti preform so well. Yes, the scores are legitimate.
I wish my pictures were better, I don't OWN any decent cameras though.
I have no problems with it. In fact, I even installed an LED Strip in there. Very nice looking.
What games are you planning to play?
I think that an SSD is absolutely ESSENTIAL for Gaming, or any other general task, such as booting up your computer. You should make it your priority to get an SSD that is at least 240GB.
I have the same case, same board, same GPU, and same series of RAM, just higher clocked. My CPU is the AMD FX-8350, overclocked to 4.6GHz...
IT KICKS BUTT! It is something you DEFINITELY should consider upgrading to.
What's it's core clock?
I have 2 SSDs. I don't believe in traditional hard drives. lol.
How many fans does your case support?
Keep in mind, this graphics card comes with Overclocking software. It clocks super high, and it's nice. I get 90 FPS in GTA V WITHOUT Overclocking.
I play GTA V with it on mid-ultra settings. I get around 90 FPS.
It was originally $140, but I had a discount code and just got it for $105.
It was in my budget.
He's right to warn you about Corsair PSU's. I recently purchased a 430CX Semi Module model, plugged it in, blew my fuse, and ruined my motherboard.
Could you link me to those LED light strips?
What's the framerate like?
Why name is Apache, after a web program?...
