Hello, i have a cheap compaq presario laptop. it has only 2gb of ram. I like to play minecraft but it lags hard. I only get about 15ish fps when i have all the settings turned down. I was wondering if there was any way to boost my fps? like a graphics card or external hard drive maybe? Please help. But please dont say buy a new computer either because thats not an option. thank you
Trust me, it can't, it lags on my grandmas celeron D (single core at 3+ Ghz) shes got on board graphics but so does he, also minecraft runs fine on even 1g of ram, its the way that java addresses space in that game. It only pulls it when it needs it, and I for one haven't gone over 700mb of ram usage.
@OP have you tried mods that help with lag, like OptiFine, or OptiMine, etc
