    When i had Ati Radeon x1200 iGPU i can't to play it when newer versions are created (versions after 1.4.8). I have AMD Athlon x2 +4200 CPU and Gigabyte GT720 1GB GDDR3 and i can max it in about 40-50 fps (32 chunks i think) but when i start recording with fraps my fps down to 10-15. So i need to upgrade CPU, right ?

    Minecraft is generally more CPU intensive. Your problem is likely CPU as that'd be what Fraps uses. If you try another program like say OBS to record or lower the settings in Fraps you might be able to get by. Also try Optifine for Minecraft if you aren't using it, it could get you some frames back.

    I think minecraft is more CPU affected. When I boost my CPU, when I stop some things, my minecraft works much better. If it lags I just go to my task manager turn of thing which is using my cpu and I turn that off, things like browser or something and that helps me :D

    I would say it's more CPU-affected than GPU-affected. Minecraft graphics are too complex (simple textures and simple polygons), but I would also say that Minecraft doesn't require too much CPU either. Now if you're using a ton of TNT, or using a lot of command blocks and redstone, then of course it'll affect your CPU.
