    Hi babyyolo, You should do a search to check and see what optimal system requirements are for each game. Game manufacturer’s commonly will test their game against multiple hardware platforms to see what performs best. I’ve put a link to the Minecraft system requirements below.

    Yes, you’ll have no problem. I’d strongy suggest running a bigger monitor. Something like a 27″ widescreen so you can actually take advantage of all that really expensive hardware for your games.
