Hello my name is McLegendMiner and I have recently came across a problem with my minecraft on my fathers imac I get about 50 FPS without optifine, but on my pc that i have recently bought about 5 days ago which i could not find any Windows 7 computers at the store which i found a great computer that i love it a gateway computer my specs are \/

Graphic- Radeon HD 7310 graphics
Disk Space- 500GB
RAM- 6GB

------------------------------------------------------------------------
But Now to the problems when i open the new launcher and while playing music and looking at my CPU usage its using alot of CPU. And i have updated all drivers and put minecraft on high priority and everything i have found on the internet and when i opened minecraft up today in a small window i pressed F3 and i saw that my FPS went up ALOT! but then when i put it into full screen mode it went back down to 1-5 FPS ive done everything from clean installing windows 8 and waiting to see if i can find windows 7 disk but i put more RAM into my java. I dont get any errors any where but its just the lag i have two accounts and they are useless right now with the windows 8 operating system. PLEASE HELP ME AND OTHERS WITH THIS PROBLEM!

I feel your pain. I play music and play Minecraft at the same time and the CPU pop-up comes up so much now. And my FPS is low just like you.

I'm sorry I didn't mean to upset you :( I was just saying that might be the problem and I don't have any idea of how to fix it and I have 32 bit

thats fine ive tried everything from allocating more RAM to java and doing everything even closing every window minecraft at this point is unplayable.
mojang made a BAD move of not allowing it to play on windows 8 -_-
