Not quite. It honestly depends on the game itself. There are a few games I could realistically run close to maxed at 4K on my 780. You are definitely right about the bigger PSU though.

Neither of those is very system intensive so that second laptop ought to be enough. And since he wants to play other games, I DEFINITELY say get the quad core. Duals just aren't cutting it any more.

Ehhhhh... maybe. The problem with Minecraft on PC is it runs on Java and isn't very efficient. Adding mods on top of that will compound the problem.
