Minecraft System Requirements

Minecraft is a game that allows you to build the world for yourself using blocks. Some activities that you have to do in the game are finding and collecting resources, creating, and fighting.

If you play in creative mode, you can use any blocks and resources to build your own buildings. Besides things that already exist in the game, you can add mods to create new items, control characters and do tasks in the games.

Although the graphics of Minecraft are simple, but not every PC can handle it. Ensure that you check your GPU, RAM, CPU, HDD, and Monitor to see whether your gaming PC can deal with Minecraft. The total price for it may be up to $2000.
