Optifine HD Mod for minecraft LOGO

Before owning a “decent” computer, the author of this review had to play and run a Minecraft server on a terrible system such as 512MB of RAM, onboard 128MB VGA,… And to be honest with you guys that were the nightmare of my gaming career. My computer was so terrible that I had to pray for the Server’s Spawn to not be overwhelming in tons of structures else my machine will be shutting itself down. One day, I decided that I had had enough, so I went online and tried to find a solution, and finally, I found it – Optifine HD, the savior of my life. So why is Optifine HD so great? You guys can see it for yourselves.
