    If you have a bad video card, but 4 gigs of ram or more, this tutorial will bring your fps up to about 80!

    First, create a text file and name it "Minecraft.bat" (disable hiding extensions for known file types in your folder options if you cannot create a .bat file)

    In the .bat, type this "@ECHO OFF
    "CProgram Files\Java\jre6\bin\javaw.exe" -Xmx6144M -Xms6144M -jar "CUsers\Skyler\Application Data\.minecraft\minecraft.exe""

    Change the directories to match your own, and where it says xmx6144 and xms6144 type a number depending on the amount of RAM you have.

    You can find the amount of RAM your computer has in your computer properties
    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    1 Gigabyte = 1024
    2 Gigabytes = 2048
    3 Gigabytes = 3072
    4 Gigabytes = 4096
    6 Gigabytes = 6144
    8 Gigabytes = 8192
    and so on..

    I have 8 gigs of RAM, but i'd like to keep 2 gigs free for any background applications.

    When you're done, open the .bat, it should open minecraft, if you have any problems quote this post and i'll help you =D

    Proof that it works:

    You can see that i have 6140 megabytes of memory allocated to minecraft, and im using 1.5 gigs of it

    Trying it now, I had to edit it for linux terminal a bit but I hope I get more than 2 FPS

    Code:
    java -Xmx2048M -Xms2048M -jar minecraft.jar
    It didn't work.

    For the CPU thing, click Set Affinity instead or Set Priority I usually put my browser on one and minecraft on the other.
