I'm new to this stuff so sorry if this is an obvious answer. I have a few options I found.

Can these play Minecraft on high settings.

Can they also play twitch livestreams/watch multiple streams at once/Watch youtube videos in highest quality.
(3D-Graphics card:NVIDIA Geforce GT 710 2GB DDR3).(Processor: AMD FX 6100 6 Core (3.3GHz base clock speed, 3.9GHz with the AMD Boost Technology)(RAM: 8GB DDR3 PC-1600 (Dual Channel)

Intel Core i5 3330 @ 3.0 GHz quad core CPU with 4 logical processors and AMD Radeon HD 7770 w 2 GB GDDR5 Dedicated Graphics.

Intel Core i7 870 @ 2.93 GHz quad core processor w/ 8 logical processors
8 GB DDR3 Memory
AMD Radeon HD 7770 GHz Edition w/ 2 GB GDDR5 Dedicated Graphics

  • AMD A8-5500 3.2GHz 3.7GHz turbo Quad-Core Processor.
  • 8GB RAM

of those options i'd pick the i5 3.1-3.4GHz with gtx 1050. I'm guessing this has an i5 2400 based on the frequencies listed.
it has by far the best GPU/graphics card.
listed in order of preference
1) i5 3.1-3.4GHz, GTX 1050
2) i5 3330, HD 7770
3) i7 860, HD 7770
4) A8-5500
5) FX 6100, GT 710

don't bother with the A8 or the FX6100. The A8 -5500 might have trouble with multiple streams, and the GT 710 won't play minecraft on high settings.

Yeah, if you were to get any of those rigs, get the i5 3.1-3.4Ghz with the GTX1050, by far.

Visit our Hot Deals forum, if you're in the USA, Walmart had a decent HP-branded Gaming PC for $499.99 + tax. That might be above your budget, but, not knowing how much you would pay for the listed rigs, maybe not?

Edit: I wouldn't pay over $300 for the i5 with GTX1050, and that price, only if it included a small SSD. Assuming everything is used, except for possibly the SSD and GPU.

Definitely the i5 w/GTX 1050 system out of those 3 options. Also though, let us know how much you are paying for them.
