The 6850 will bottle neck the 2500k just get either a cheaper processor or more expensive graphics card.
Uh actually no. Don't listen to this guy. I have both the 6850 and 2500k and it works just fine.

Most of the time people hate because they can't afford it, and people will argue saying this isn't the case and that there are other reasons. P.S. There aren't.
The only downside to ALienwares are the slightly reflective screen, and sometimes (depends on what graphics card you got) will not play well with minecraft, specifically getting under 10 FPS when something like Skyrim will be getting 100+. Other than that, not much too it.

I HIGHLY suggest building your own... You can just watch a couple tutorials on youtube and bam! You'll know how to build your own computer, or if you want you can take it to the local computer shop and have them build it for you.
XFX Radeon HD 7970
Intel i5 2500k
Corsair White Graphite 600T
XFX Pro 850W 80+ SILVER
Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM 500GB
CoolerMaster 212 +
Asus 24X DVD Burner
That should dominate every game on the market.

making a game can be a *click and your done* process, if you use engines. also, stop being an old fart. kids misspell because they want to. at least I do. HOLY CRAP! this reply has perfect spelling! jerk.
LittleBlocks is a mod that allows you to polish up your creativity and optimize your redstone systems. Indeed, the size of blocks placed in a little blocks is divided by eight compared to its original size, so you can place 512 blocks instead of one.

Mining Overhaul changes the way you mine in Minecraft, by making stone and some of the ores drop nuggets, rocks, and bits to be crafted into ingots, items, and blocks, and adding a new ore called Experite, dropping experience points when it is mined, this new ore also has the same texture as stone. With Experite added, you can now earn experience for mining!
Why do stone and some of the ores drop nuggets, rocks, and bits? To give a twist to mining. Instead of one ore dropping one block, some of the ores (Iron, Gold, and Diamond) drop a random amount of nuggets, rocks, and bits (ranging from 6 to 12) to make mining more fun and realistic. The rocks, bits, and nuggets will fill up your inventory much faster, giving you a great reason to use minecarts with storage chests in your mines!

Hey, I just looked through some models and [insert link here] and [insert link here] might fit your needs. Basically, what you're looking for is yadda yadda, because you really don't want to end up with yadda yadda. See if you can get some yadda yadda so you don't end up wasting your money on some brick.

I've been using ANTI-ZOMBIE for a while and its pretty good, haven't had any problems with it so far. Here's a link to its , see if its any good for you.
then people could perfectly suggest systems that fit to these specs. Same goes for new releases, people can easily express their opinions about the new versions, explain new features and trade tweaks.Quote from GRANDPAAA »

LOL ITS BECAUSE YOU'RE USING A MAC USE PC INSTEAD
Quote from Billmo »
I don't use Mac PC's, but this sounds like a regular overheating problem. Get some compressed air and blow the out of your machine, get the dust out of there and see if it made any changes. If not, or you don't feel comfortable doing that, doesn't Apple provide some service called applecare or whatever? See if they can help.

0.3Ghz higher and -50$ dollars. I'm feeling I have chosen mine, I'd say FX-4100? Mine is NDIVIA ShitDriver, so any computer with the age of 1980+ is fairly nice to me.

Well you said people who use Macs are stupid and ignorant.I pretty sure those add up to be a pretty crappy person.
Quote from EdgeTube
My problem is that, with Fraps, I almost need to record in full screen to make videos.
My screen resolution is 1680 x 1050, so halfsize won't work for HD, and I can't manage without HD...
Your computer is likely just not good enough to record, or you are trying to record footage to the same drive that your OS and game are running off of, which will do nothing but slow the whole system down.At half size? It works fine. I get my 30 frames, it only really drops below when loading a new chunk, but it's fine other than that. But full size? I'll stay at 30, but if I move a bit or jump or something? Drops hard. Stabilizes at like 18.
I've tried each trick I've been made aware of. The mods FPS++ and Optifine.
I've never heard anyone complaining about it, so no. Why not just backup %appdata%\.minecraft and try it?Speaking of Optifine, is it true that it gives you those chunk errors? Where there's just a hole in the world of untextured blocks?
Running so many FPS "boosting" mods is only going to cause issues, but again no amount of tricks can save an old/outdated PC.Anyway. I use both, I even did most of the optifine settings so they'd be as fast as possible. Still not able to. Heck, I think I can even record in far render distance on half, but not even short on full screen.
Batch file probably did absolutely nothing, setting priority will do nothing, and gamebooster will do nothing. Gamebooster is literally just a placebo.Another thing I tried was DocM's batch file. Granted, I'm not positive I got it working, but I tried and tried. It does open minecraft. But yeah, still not working. I've tried using Task Manager to up the priority. I think it's better. Still not good enough, though. Gamebooster? Still not good enough.
Get a better computer, or start performing regular maintenance.What else is there? Is there a mod better than the two I've tried? A better way to allocate memory to the game? Is there some common FPS raising knowledge I've managed to not find out about? Is there another good
2. Improving my current computer.
So here is what I'm working with right now...
OS: Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2
Processor: Intel Core2 Quad CPU Q8200 @ 2.33GHz 2.34 GHz
System Type: 64 bit
Video card: ATI Radeon HD 4650 1024mb
(I'll update it if there's any other specs people would be interested in)
I already posted in the other thread.What should I prioritize in updating? I'd like a better processor, but they're like a few hundred dollars each and maybe the most expensive part. I've got a quad core, so I hope that's good enough. What would be the best part to update for recording minecraft gameplay? Video card? I know it's old.
3. Building a PC.
So, here's one thing I'm more interested in just expanding my knowledge of. What I do is play games, record games, and edit photos and videos.
1. What parts are necessary? Things like a processor, a video and sound card...
2. How much would it cost, roughly, for one to be built that'd meet my needs? Say if I get everything from Newegg.
3. Any guides you'd recommend?
Hahaha, no. Intel's processors stay pretty stagnant in price, even when horribly outdated. Intel is the leader in CPUs currently, the i3 beats the best AMD 6 cores and the i5 beats the rest. You do not need more than 8GB of RAM. You do not need an i7 unless you do video editing/rendering/code compiling FOR A LIVING, it performs exactly the same as the i5 for gaming. You do not need a 1.21gigowatt power supply, unless you are going with a GTX580/GTX590 600-650w will be MORE than plenty.4. Anything I should know? I've heard Intel comes out with a new processor every 2 years and that once the new one comes out, the old one bombs in price, so to wait for that. But that could be false. Things of that nature, though. The helpful tips.
Non-issue. Windows has generic drivers for everything, and what it does not have can either be found on the motherboard CD (which you might need to use for newer motherboards) or on the internet.5. How does one ensure compatibility? Say, for Windows 7, if that matters.
The guide I linked will give insight to this. EVGA mobos and GPUs are amazing but have a price premium. MSi mobos and GPUs are pretty good. Gigabyte mobos and GPUs are pretty good. ASUS mobos and GPUs are excellent. ASRock mobos are very good. WD, Seagate and Samsung disk drives are excellent, Hitachi drives are the absolute worst, any other brands are a case of "you get what you pay for". Seasonic and XFX power supplies are usually the best. Anything I did not mention will be covered either through research (which you should be doing), other threads, or the links I posted.6. Brands to trust? Not to trust?
7. Minimums? Like, should I not go below 8gb ram? Should my power supply be at least ____?
Do not decide on a CPU based on GHz or # of cores. Do not decide on a GPU based on it's clock speed or numbers. Always decide on a GPU/CPU based on benchmarks (though CPUs are pretty baseline right now. Strict budget: Intel sandy bridge celeron, loose budget: i3 2100/2120, midrange: i5 2400, high end: i5 2500/2500k, extreme/enthusiast: i7 2600/2600k or better) Choose a mobo based on reviews, features, and if it fits your needs. Ignore DOA/"it didnt work when I got it" reviews, parts are not built to last anymore and dead on arrival items are quite common. Newegg and most manufacturer RMA processes are very painless. Get a graphics card with 2 fans and a non-stock cooler like the MSi Twin Frozr series. Get a case with good airflow and good cable management options. Cases vary on personal taste but generally the cooler master HAF912 is considered excellent for the price ($40-50). BENCHMARKS, RESEARCH, AND REVIEWS ARE EVERYTHING.8. If you built your own computer, can you tell me some things you factored in to your decision-making? You got this because and you didn't need to do this because ___.
Again, I'll stress that you don't need to answer every question or anything. Just contribute to educating me in any way would be awesome.
