    posted a message on How reliable is NewEgg.ca?
    I was just wondering how reliable newegg.ca is for ordering computers off of. Im wondering about getting a new one from there but I see so many reviews complaining about faulty computer parts and things breaking and then getting the BSOD and so on. So i was just wondering if it is safe to buy and ENTIRE computer off of NewEgg.ca

    Thanks for time and replies and answers would be super greatly appreciated :)

    Edit: I want to order a pc and not build my own one even though building one is better overall, please keep this in mind and all your replies and input are great

    Just do what I said in my previous post.

    The reason Minecraft is not running well but BF3 is, is because your laptop utilizes dual GPUs -- a Radeon HD 6490M, and a crappier, next-to-useless Intel GPU. The latter is used when you want to save power. By default, your computer will decide which one it thinks is appropriate, based on how intensive the application you're running is.

    Because it doesn't think Minecraft is intensive at all, it will not use the 6490M, and will opt for the Intel GPU, which, since it sucks, will cause you to lag. Like I said in my previous post, go into your BIOS (assuming it's up-to-date), and change the switchable graphics thingy from "Dynamic" to "Fixed", and...well, read my previous post.


    Never mind i figured it out!!! Thank you so MUCH! Now i get about 80fps on minecraft!!! YOU ARE AMAZING!!!!

    Thanks for all the help and I think you solution is really going to work but when I follow your steps and open the switchable graphics i get a screen like this: http://imgur.com/GSYOU and do not have the option or same screen as you to set my gpu into high preformance, I think that everything is up to date and if it isnt could you please fill me in on how to update it. Thank you sooo much!

    Hello, I have been a long time fan of minecraft and have had the game since early alpha. I used to play minecraft on my large desktop pc untill I got a new laptop. My old pc desktop had a Radeon 4200 graphics card and 6gigs or ram and a 2.0ghz processor. Now my new laptop that I bought is quite good for gaming and minecraft lags even though i can run games like Battlefield 3 at med-high graphics. I was wondering if someone could help me out and help me fix my minecraft lag.

    New laptop specs:

    Lpatop: Hp Pavilion Dv6 (with beats audio)

    Intel Core i5-2410M Cpu @ 2.3ghz

    6gigs of ram

    Mobile Intel HD Graphics

    Radeon HD 6490M

    (idk why it show there are two different graphics cards)

    I have a 64bit operating system

    Screen resolution: 1366x768

    I have installed optifine and that has helped the lag quite a bit and has improved my fps from about 10 (with many lag spikes to about 20fps in minecraft and the fps will sometimes reach 30 in places where very little blocks have to be rendered. When i walk outside (in minecraft the games fps also faces a harsh drop) I can also no go near trees or forest/swamp/jungle biomes with fancy leaves on because for some reason when my character gets closer to the fancy tree leaves cause the game to drop down to about 0-1 fps and always have to play on fast graphics even though my cpu should be able to handle minecraft because it can obviously run much more recourse intensive games like battlefield and call of duty.
    Please help!!!!
