Best Answer

Yes it can. I've done it plenty of times (my computer uses a 1.8GHz dual-core). I've played UT2004 and Need for Speed Most Wanted fine on it. Mind you, if your computer has a 1.6GHz processor, increase the RAM to the maximum supported, it really helps.

How can you stop minecraft lagging?

Well, you can help the lag, but you can't stop it completely. You can do this by pausing the game, going into options, and turning down the render distance, turning off smooth lighting, limiting the frame rate, and turning the graphics from fancy to fast. -Also if you have a dual or quad core processor, try restricting Minecraft to using 1 or 2 cpu cores. Go into task manager and click on the processes tab. Find Minecraft in the list. Right click on Minecraft and go to Set Affinity and un-check CPU 2 and 3 (if you have a quad core processor) or just 2 (if you have a dual core processor)

Can I run a game on old CPU socket 478 2.4GHz with new video card with 512M DDR2 without any problem i.e the game will run fast as well?

It depends heavily on what your playing in all accounts. If your playing anything equal or Above the graphics of World of Warcraft, then I suggested getting more Memory. Most games now a days wont run max settings with out at least a dual core processor as well as at least 2GB of RAM. But I personally run Aion Online with a Single core 2.4Ghz processor with only 1.5GB of DDR RAM. I'm at max Settings and I run about 20 Frames per second out side busy areas. So all I do is just move my settings down one notch and it runs smoothly. Hope this answered your question.
