  1. you made a big mistake buying that card with your crappy cpu
    youll get horrible performance in most games due to the huge bottleneck (courtesy your cpu) the review you saw on wiki most likely was conducted on modern hardware and so is way better
    i think the best you can do at this point is o'c the hell out of your cpu (4-4.1 ghz) or overhaul your computer
    upgrading to a core 2 quad also may solve your problem
  2. oke tell me wat cpu and motherboard + ram i need to get my budget is 650$ ill think thata enough thanx i had a feeling that this was the reason
  3. this is the rig for 650$ asuming you have a video card and a monitor-
    asus p8z77-139$

    Minecraft runs on java so I'm pretty sure your GPU has nothing to do with it. It's your processor that's ruining it!
