FPS Problems

Last response: in Graphics & Displays

I'm a casual Gamer with not the best computer. I play mainly Minecraft but if my computer could handle more i would definitely start playing more games. But my computer cant play more and it is frustrating me. I can barely play Minecraft on fast and tiny (lowest graphic settings) without having low fps or massive lag spikes.

My specs are: Dell Ispiron 15R N5110
4GB Ram
Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2310M CPU 2.10GHz
Inte(R) HD Graphics Family
64-bit Operating System

I know my graphics and computer aren't that great but shouldn't it at least be able to play lowest setting without lag.
Any responses would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

No it shouldn't. That the old gen graphics and will struggle with any games.

You need a dedicated card for gaming.

There are external graphics solutions for laptops that use thunderbolt which your laptop would not have. So I guess it comes down to what are you after if you want to play games you would want something a little more gaming centered your laptop is more general use centered and also you would then have to decide how much would you be willing to put into a system and what would you like out of it and then go from there.

I would say building would be preferable there are great videos out there to help you with this. I always push the newegg one because I feel the guy goes slow and explains things in really simple terms. You made it into the forums to ask questions I think you can probably manage to do this. Also if you need help picking parts or assisting with building a pc don't hesitate to ask.

if you could help me with parts i would really appreciate it. i sort of know about computers but most likely not enough to pick parts for a computer. my price range would most likely be around $1000 but less would be good but i could probably stretch a bit.

Of course :)  Also, I will choose a easier case to deal with just because even the cheaper cases can be a bit of a hassle sometimes to deal with as a notation. Also keep in mind that prices do change and just because the price of the build is at where it is now it very well could change over time :)  So with that said I went with a unlocked processor because it gives you the option to overclock at some point however that being said you could go cheaper if you really wanted to advert from going there. Which would lower the cost of the CPU/Motherboard. Also, I went with low profile ram in the event that you did end up placing a CPU cooler that was large in your computer. I was originally going to recommend the fratal design refine r4 but the 300R is a great case at a low price point and looks really easy to deal with. The graphics card you can make more of a personal touch with I was trying to go under 1000 and not really break the bank staying under 900 was a goal because it gives you a little room to improve in areas that you'd like. So I went with a 660Ti you could of gone with a AMD product I just felt like it was more price appropriate given your budget. Viable AMD solutions would be 7950,7870, 7850 and the other nvidia solution I was looking at for you was the 670 so if you wanted that you could get that as well.

thank you so much. you really are a great help. the only problem there could be is that i live in australia not america and im pretty sure newegg or any of the big pc companies dont ship to australia and even if they did it would be a lot more expensive because of international shipping.

I changed a few things. I changed the case because it wasn't available in your area maybe just the stores it looks at don't have it either way the CM Storm Scout is a excellent case I built a computer using that case. I changed the Video Card to stay in budget. Also, this does not include windows so if you need windows you may want to make modifications to this list or I can.

Not a problem and if you need help building or w.e don't hesitate to ask those videos will help you but if you are unclear about something. I'm willing to help you out as I'm sure others are on the forums.
