Gaming computer runs minecraft very poorly

I have been building a gaming computer over the last few months, and while it will run any game like skyrim or grand theft auto four on a mixture of high and ultra graphics with mods, it fails to run minecraft well. It can freeze up for seconds at a time when fps drops like crazy, and generally has a higher temperature ( 40 degrees Celsius) than other games ( 30-35 degrees)

My components are:
AMD FX-6200 6 core 3.8 ghz processor
Gigabyte GA-78MLT-USB3
8 GB ram (2x4) Kingston hyper x blu ddr3
Zotac 1gb ddr3 gt440 AT-40708-10L
Corsair TX 750 V2

Is minecraft just generally hard to run? on my old system, a 2.4 ghz dual core intel celeron, intel desktop board dg41rq with the same video card but 2 gb (2x1) of kingston ram it ran perfectly smooth on "far" and "fancy" settings, though it ran around 75 to 80 degrees celsius. Any thoughts?

Best solution

Your problem is you have a 6 core and CPU. For going you should have got a i5 2500(k or not) or an i5 3570(k or not) not a and fax series. It makes a great xpu for rendering videos. I'm assuming you bought this didn't build it, I'm afraid you might be screwed with this one. But do try to install a x64 java SDK or x64 runtime environment before you do anything else.

I will try the x64 Java install, but I did not know a higher amount of cores effects gameplay negatively? I built it using the FX-6200 out of cost issues, as the comparable Intel i-series processors in cores and gigahertz were really expensive and I was on a pretty tight budget.

True fact:
Amd CPUs can't run games.like i5/7s can.
No Intel CPU will ever come close to having as much video rendering power as a FX.
