    Those specs aren't too bad, although you could get lag if your mods introduce new calculations that happen in the background (you specifically mentioned Minefactory Reloaded). The 1.7.10 versions of the mods probably have new features that aren't in the 1.6.4 version.

    Play the game with your computer's resource monitor running. If Minecraft is maxing out both your CPU and your RAM (using the entire 2GB you allocated), then your game is being lagged by java's memory management. Increasing the RAM allocation will make a huge improvement in this case. If the RAM is not at the max but Minecraft is still maxing out your CPU, then your mods are doing to much computation and there isn't much you can do besides lower the render distance (and turn on VBO rendering if that option is available in 1.7.10). Another trck you can do in this case is use a dedicated server instance on the same computer, which will spread the computation across more CPU cores, but you only have a dual-core CPU, s this won't help much (unless you run the server on a different computer). If your CPU isn't maxed out, then your lag is coming from your graphics card. You'll have to play with your graphics settings and texture packs to improve the performance, but a mod that does a lot of old-fashioned direct rendering is going to drag-down your frame-rate no matter what settings you use.

    I hope that helps. If it is any consolation, my friend who has an even wimpier laptop than yours got a huge FPS increase when she switched to Minecraft 1.8, which uses a more modern rendering style (it is much less CPU intensive and stores more data in the video RAM). I've made a few mods for 1.8, so I'm sure your favorite mods will be updated in the coming months.

    Thanks alot DrCyano :D

    Also, make sure you have the -Xmx option set (e.g. -Xmx3g) to allocate enough RAM. If not specified, a java program will not use more than one-quarter of your computer's RAM, but a modded Minecraft game needs about 2GB to run smoothly (you need to have 64bit java installed to allocate more than 1.5GB).

    Another graphics option to check is MipMaps. Set that to off. Mip-mapping can really drag down your FPS if you have an older (as in doesn't support OpenGL 4.0) graphics card.

    Edit: Oops, I didn't see that you already stated that you have this option set.

    Laptop Specs: (never had much problems with Minecraft)
    6GB DDR3 RAM
    Intel Core i3-2310M @ 2.1 GHz
    Intel HD Graphics 3000 with latest drivers
    Java 7 64-bit

    Which is way too much. 128MB is more then enough for most modpacks, 256MB to be on the safe side. Of course if you use max size attribute it's meaningless since Java uses as much as it needs and the attribute sets only it's max allowance. And then it gets useless with Java 8 since PermGen is move to another area ...

    You see what I mean about knowing some basics?

    I will reduce it to 256MB tomorrow and see what happens.

    Quote from grimallq »1.7.x had a major graphical update over 1.6.4. This caused the game to generally work slower.

    Another thing is Java settings. Most modpack Launchers have some default settings that might make the game run better (or at least not trip over common issues like PermGen). When you install mods on your own with the standard launcher (or MultiMC) you have to be aware of those issues. At the very least you have to know how to set up PermGen and Java versions.

    I had Max PermGen set to 1GB and reduced it to 512MB

    Can someone please help me?

    Ok, how is it that If I play a modpack such a SkyFactory on MC 1.6.4 (i can't remember how much mods in SkyFactory) it doesn't lag but when I create my own modpack for MC 1.7.10 with around 40 mods it lags like hell, even on the main menu and in-game with Optifine and FPS+ installed.

    When i pause the game my FPS goes from 1-7 all the way to 30-60

    Pleaseeeeeeeee help me :(

    I have 2GB RAM allocated to Minecraft and I have my latest graphics drivers
    *edit*

    It seems that when I add the Minefactory Reloaded mod then I experience serious lag :/ *sigh*

    Looks like I have to downgrade to 1.6.4 again (so that I can get the open blocks mod and other cool mods)

    posted a message on Minecraft won't start! [1.6.4] Crashes after "play"
    Guys all I had to do to fix the problem was install my latest graphics drivers, restart my computer and Minecraft worked fine

    to find out your graphics adapter type dxdiag in start menu, run it and go to the display tab, and see whatever is there e.g Intel HD Graphics 5000 then search for your latest drivers on the internet
