I have eight gigs of RAM, and a 3.6 ghz processor and a 1gb graphics card. (If that matters) It's not actually Minecraft itself I was wondering how much to allocate, It's the technic pack and I'm lagging in it so I was wondering:
How much RAM should I give Minecraft(Technic pack) I'm currently giving to gigs.
Also, having a 3.6 Ghz processor and a 1 GB graphics card says little about the overall performance. Ghz is a poor measure of performance because processors can do different amount of work per clock. A 3.6 Ghz processor could be anything from a Pentium 4 662 (bad) to an FX 4100 (meh) or an i7 3820 (Great, although expensive compared to alternatives). VRAM only tells how much RAM the graphics card has to use, not how fast it is (for example, GDDR3 is worse than GDDR5) or anything about what the graphics card actually does with it.
