    posted a message on All my games run great except Minecraft
    All my games on my laptop are running fine (Civ 5, Skyrim), I can even run them at high settings. But when I go on minecraft my fps fluxuates between 5 and 52 fps! I tried different settings and nothing improved. Why is Minecraft being so laggy?

    Specs:
    AMD A8-3520m APU (1.6-2.5ghz)
    AMD Radeon 7770m 1gb
    8gb of RAM @1600mhz
    5400 RPM 750GB hdd

    Thanks for your time.

    Quote from FrozenOblivion

    You have a overkill power supply. The ram is a little on the pricey side, get some G.Skill value set. Please get an i3 2120 and H77 or H67 motherboard. i3 2120 beats the FX-4170 by a low shot. You really won't need a VelociRaptor drive, and they cost a lot. Get a 6850 over the 7770. Not too sure on your case too.

    what power supply would you recommend? I would like to upgrade my pc in the future so it can't be too low

    Is this really going to become a thread on which is better, amd or intel? If you plan on trying to convince me to buy intel, please leave I have no wish to argue.

    Not very good.
    i5 2500k with a ASRock Extreme4 or MSI Z77 G45 then throw a 7850 in there.
    And I'd drop that VelociRaptor drive and get an SSD (or not if it doesn't fit in your budget.)

    Maybe, I might (Drop the Velociraptor hard drive). I actually already have a ssd in the build, it was under hard drive 2 by accident.

    Quote from CodofMC

    Here's the thing, you can't just eliminate one of the only two available CPU brands as a choice. There is ABSOLUTELY no good reason at all for only going with AMD processors. We can't help you if you eliminate the only CPU competitor as a choice.

    Oh and also, GHz does not equal performance. An Intel processor running at 4.2GHz is unlikely to perform the same as an AMD processor at 4.2GHz.

    Come back when you are willing to listen to reason and then we can suggest parts for you. The people in this thread are recommending Intel processors in their builds because they have good reason to. You have no intelligent reason to not go with Intel.


    First of all, I know that Ghz does not equal performance, it also depends on the architecture of the cpu, second, I do have a valid reason why not to buy Intel products. How do you know why my choice of not buying Intel is unintelligent?
    Quote from Coldplaya

    Personal Reasons. as stated in the post, :P Let the man buy an AMD, should he prefer one. Which in this case is a yes.

    Howabout this?: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/e3KC

    Thank you

His parents seeing his private misery decided to buy him "friends". These "friends" usually were poor Dwarves trying to find there place in this world. They were constantly caught stealing and were often replaced. This repeated until something happened that would change his life forever.
    Spoiled beyond belief, he become ravenousness for gold. God, seeing his greed spoiled manner, came down to him in Aegis. For salvation, Dwarves must rid themselves of greed.

Awakened startlingly, Fal'on opened his mouth to shout but, seeing God, he quickly grew speechless. Frightened before God, Fal'on cowardly began trying to repent for his sins. On his hands and knees he cried and asked for God's forgiveness. When God spoke, Fal'on felt it as more as "feelings" than "words". God left him with a diamond.

    When he woke, he could not remember what happened. But that was not what he was thinking of. He found himself in a jail sell. Looking around, he saw lava, ghasts, and hoards of ghost working ad infinitum. In front of him he saw for what seemed like forever, he stared at the pools of lava a the misery of the ghosts. He then noticed God. Standing before Fal'on, Fal'on trembled "Is this the Nether? Have a sinned enough to get myself here." God answers. Fal'on is given a choice.

    posted a message on Minecraft Large Mountain Mod (Idea)
    Hello fellow Minecrafters,
    Since 1.2.3 came out, I have been looking around for a mod that which would tweak the world generation to make large mountains that would take advantage of the new world height. I have seen mods out there which do take advantage of the world height, make make crazy mountains and weird shapes. Correct me if I am wrong, but there a no mods that would take advantage of the new height limit, and also make it look it was generated in normal Minecraft.
