Pentium 4 can play minecraft if you got the graphics card to back it up. But getting a new gpu for a slow cpu would be a waste price wise.
If you want to just get a new cpu get an AMD lano there cheap and got a dedicated graphics card built into the cpu.

That card looks a lot like a old card(probably same brand) I tried to put in the PC, minus the HDMI port. Though the PC seemingly rejected the old card I assume, because it beeped continuously when I installed it.
Also my price range would be around $30
That is an older nvidia card but should have no issues running in your system
That is what I recommend.
Dec 12, 2011Make sure you got the pci-e slot for it and what is your price range.Posted in: Computer Science and Technology
Cheap lowprofile card.
Problems if there is poor airflow over the card for prolonged gamming it could overheat.
More expensive low profile card.
Handle source games fine got fans to prevent overheating in cases with poor airflow.
Dec 12, 201150-70 fps on averagePosted in: Computer Science and Technology
AMD Athlon x3 overclocked to 3.25.
AMD 6970 2G overclocked
6 gigs of ram
Only if minecraft would use more of the gpu I could get a tolerable fps or if the stupid cpu would stay stable at 3.3.

Dec 12, 2011Why do you want it to support OpenCL so bad it is not really intended for games unless you wanted to wright a physics engine using it .Posted in: Computer Science and Technology
But CPU generally have tons of cores not begin used by games and it would be better to use the CPU then the GPU in most cases.
Dec 12, 2011Well depends mostly on the experience of the programers the language it is done in and any library's or API you might use.Posted in: Computer Science and Technology
Are you supporting both opengl and directx or just one. What do you want this engine to do.
Took dice roughly 2 to redo the frostbite engine for battlefield 3.
Dice also has 280 employees.
Took Blizzard roughly 4+ years for the warcraft3 engine and make the game.
Took blizzard 4 years to add mmorpg aspect to the engine and make the game.
Blizzard has enough employees that they could have been finishing up the engine while artists were making models.
That and they had working demos of wow in 2001 on there lan.
Blizzard has 4600 employes
How many hours you work will also change that.
There are simply too many variables to give an exact date but you can look at the examples from large company's.
