I was going to buy a Dell XPS 8500 and then thought how cool it would be to build my computer. I would like to know if this will record Minecraft at 60+ fps.
Intel Core i5 3570k
Asus Sabertooth Z77 LGA 1155
Corsair Vengeance 2x8gb (16gb) RAM
Corsair Obsidian 650D
Geforce GT 640 2gb EVGA Graphics (Maybe 660 or 680)
Asus DVD Drive
Samsung 840 Series 120gb SSD (Run windows on this drive)
Western Digital 1T 7200rpm Hard Drive
Corsair Enthusiast 750Watt Power Supply
RAZER Naga
Hp Keyboard
2x21" Samsung HD Monitors
Please leave any comments you have and if I should build this PC!

Nice build. Don't know about the game. The i5K you can always easily OC. Make sure you get a good cooler - maybe this one..

If you can shell out the extra shekels, I would suggest replacing the Samsung 840 with the 840 Pro. The 840 uses unproven TLC storage that potentially will not be as durable as the time proven MLC technology. Also, the 840 Pro has a five year warranty while the 840's is only three years.

An OCZ Vector is another option. The Vector is currently the fastest SSD on the planet.

I would suggest that you check out Maximum PC mag.. They test all the latest and greatest components. Two or three times a year they have different builds that you can follow. I have built 4 computers following their builds with some slight modifications.
