;-; well i just got it and it runs at around 200-300fps on a good day. lol got shaders running at 20-40 tho
but thanks anyway ;-;
Got elder scrolls oblivion running at 60fps. (a 360 game)
That GT 720 will run Minecraft just fine, along with the AMD CPU (especially if you've overclocked), and shaders (as you can see) run... at playable framerates. Older games like Oblivion will run on it just fine, Skyrim can run at 1080p with the settings on low according to benchmarks, newer games? Likely not playable. You might want to invest in a graphics card upgrade, which would likely mean a PSU upgrade along with it (you didn't state what PSU you have, so I'm assuming you have like a low-end low-wattage PSU, in which case you will need an upgrade). Also which shader pack did you use? What FPS do you get with a shader pack like SEUS 10.1 Standard full-screened (preferably 1080p) and default video settings? That will give you an accurate idea of how good your card is with shaders.
If you wanna go with team green (NVIDIA), an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti is a decent middle-class card, not the best, certainly better than your current one, and doesn't require an uber-PSU to run. If you can spare the watts, a GTX 960 is a good NVIDIA card for 1080p gaming, most recent games can be maxed out (or close to). If you wanna go with team red (AMD), look around for your options. AMD tends to have cheaper cards, meaning they're friendlier for budget builds, and with DX12 coming along with Mantle and Vulkan, AMD will pull ahead (especially when paired with an AMD CPU, of which you have one) of NVIDIA as their cards and CPUs are optimised for multi-threaded workloads and rendering. If all you're going to be playing is Minecraft, go for NVIDIA, NVIDIA has better OpenGL support than AMD and tends to have better quality drivers (though the recent change introducing Radeon Settings: Crimson Edition may change that, despite the fan problems it brought).
