Cool Gaming computer

Hello. I'm looking into buying a new gaming computer. I mostly play minecraft and i would like to be able to record at a high FPS. These are some ones i've been looking at.

Amazon.com: Acer Aspire V3-571G-9683 15.6-Inch Laptop (Midnight Black): Computers & Accessories

Intel Core i7-2600K, Galaxy GeForce GTX 680, Cooler Master Storm Scout - System Build - PCPartPicker

Thanks,
AlphaPVP

The PC will be the best bet but I don't think it takes a whole lot to record and play Minecraft.
The 3rd list PC is also missing a lot of parts.

Ok. Do you have any suggestions for computers that can record minecraft at a high FPS? Or give me a list of parts on PCpartpicker.com

Thanks

Like I said I personally don't think it would take a whole lot of machine to do it but since I don't actually play the game at all I can't give you a definite answer. One of the other people who do like Puddle or iFar will have to pitch in.

I play minecraft with everything turned up and using a higher res texture pack, which is about as demanding as minecraft will get unless you use something like spoutcraft Or a much higher res texture pack like 256x256. I can record in full Hd.

This texture pack to be exact. Download BDcraft Texturepacks | BDcraft the 64x64 one.

my specs are in my signature.

So then I'm guessing an i3 3220 and GTX 660 based rig would record and play just fine.

Thanks for all this help. But a friend mentioned this laptop to me. Would it be good for gaming and recording minecraft? It does have 8gb RAM and is an ASUS laptop.

Meh, your right, but then again it's minecraft. Not like it matters too much as you mentioned earlier.

I just can't justify spending 600 bucks for Minecraft.
