Hi Bec,

Thanks you have been super to work with while guiding me through all of my issues with getting mods to work. Now I'm looking to get a new computer, any suggestions on CPU, Memory and Video cards? My computer is 4-5 years old, and I don't think is sufficient for running Minecraft.

Also, when I get the new computer, how do I copy all the Minecraft software over.  I really don't want to have to pay for it again.


Hi Michelle, it's really no problem at all. For the new computer, this is a handy set of minimum and recommended requirements at the Minecraft Support website.

When you're ready to download Minecraft again, you can just log in to your Mojang account (where you got the file the first time) and download it again. There's no limit to how many times you can download the file.

Good luck!
