what cpu would be good for minecraft
For strictly minecraft. The G3258 is a good option.
Do you have a budget?

Minecraft is not a very demanding game. An FX-4350, should do you just fine.
If you want an Intel chip, then the $70 G3258 is a good choice with a high overclock ceiling.
I would rather have an x4 860k than a 4350.
potato. Seriously though, any processor can run minecraft at decent settings. But if you want good frames for cheap, Athlon 860k or pentium G3258
Just Minecraft? A8-7600. It also has pretty good integrated graphics.
Had this question too. Getting a 4790k for Christmas, was wondering if it was a good CPU for MC and a few other things.
should be... a G3258 is good
You dont need an i7 for tht, waste of money. I reccomend an e3 1231 v3, if youre upgrading an old computer, be sure to check youre motherboard socket.
