So, if you've got a 120hz monitor, then anything over around 120 FPS makes no difference in quality at all.

If you've got a 60hz monitor, which is the most common, then 60fps is the most the monitor will make use of.

That said, most games are designed to run at either 30fps [most common] or 60fps. The only games that actually make any benefit out of anything more than 60 fps are Stereoscopic 3D games run on a 120hz 3D monitor. [60 fps for each eye.] Even then, most only run at around 30fps for each eye.

Put simply, anything over 30fps isn't a problem at all. It's how a majority of games are intended to run in the first place. 60fps is nice, but there's no point to any higher framerate. It doesn't really do anything to improve the way a game looks or plays beyond that point anyway, and you're just wasting energy and creating needless heat pushing framerates beyond that.

If you've got stereoscopic 3D, then you might want to go for 120 in a stereoscopic game, otherwise there's no good reason to have a framerate that high. For the vast majority of games a framerate between 30-60 is fine and more than 60fps has absolutely no benefit.
I think I covered that already bud in post 5. I think he is having other issues that need sorting and it's not a Frames per second issue.

What exactly is it doing? From what you've told us nothing is wrong with it at all. There's not much we can tell you based on your previous post, but what you've described so far is just Minecraft running the way it should.

Is it crashing, freezing, or lagging and stuttering? Are textures not loading? What exactly is or isn't it doing that it was before? What version are you using? Do you have mods installed? Did you update it with mods installed? Are you running Advanced OpenGL?

You've not given us much information and there is nothing wrong with the framerates you say you're getting.

The first thing that comes to my mind for general troubleshooting is that you might want to turn off Advanced OpenGl as some systems, even very powerful PCs, don't like that setting.

Monitors don't cause stuttering. It's an issue elsewhere.

It might be Java. Go to Start> Control Panel> Programs and Features. Then scroll down until you see Java. If you've got 'Java 7 Update 21' uninstall it. If you've already got 'Java 7 Update 25' (64bit) installed you don't need to install it again, but if not go here and install the 64 bit version of Java: Java Downloads for All Operating Systems

It should be at the top of the list just under the 32 bit version. 'Windows Offline (64bit)' is the one you want.

Note that deleting 'Java 7 Update 21' will mean that Java won't work with 32 bit browsers anymore. [Like IE or Firefox.] To get around this switch to a 64 bit browser. IE sucks anyway so if you're using that you should switch to a safer browser to begin with. IE is full of infections and malware because it's so commonly used. Honestly hardly anyone who knows anything about computers uses IE. Firefox is much more secure and has a 64 bit version called Waterfox which can be obtained here: Waterfox - Download - The fastest 64-bit variant of Firefox on the web

If you still have issues with the game I'd ask if you are using a Windows Aero desktop theme? I know it sounds weird, but using a custom or non-Aero theme can cause issues in some games with Windows 7. If not, try using one and see if that helps. Minecraft is one of the games prone to odd glitches because of it. Go to Start> Control Panel> Personalization to change the Desktop theme and be sure to use one of the Aero themes.

If that doesn't work? What version of Minecraft are you running? It says what version it is in the bottom left corner of the start menu. Did you mod the game and then update? If so you shouldn't do that. Most Minecraft mods require a specific version of the game to work.

If you've modded the game and it's giving you trouble, I suggest a clean install. Delete Minecraft and reinstall it. It's easy to do with Minecraft and doesn't take that long. If nothing I suggested above has worked, I'd suggest the same thing. Just reinstall Minecraft and see if things improve.
