If you are into tweaking and enhancing the graphics in Minecraft, OptiFine FPS Boost mod is a must for you. It gives you several new video options and also supports HD texture and stuff like that.
There are currently three versions of OptiFine available. The OptiFine HD B4 Ultra includes all the features (like multi-core and AA) and is highly configurable. Then there is the OptiFine HD B4 Standard. This version has built in support for HD fonts, textures, better grass. Lastly there is the OptiFine HD B4 Light. The light edition is recommended if you are running Minecraft on a rather slow computer. It slightly improves FPS, but there is no HD features or extended configurations. Also, the light edition is not compatible with ModLoader and Forge.
OptiFine can be installed with MCPatcher, but if you make sure to uninstall the HD textures, HD font and BetterGrass in MCPatcher, as these are already included in OptiFine.
Also, if you are installing other mods, make sure to install OptiFine as the last mod. The only exception is mods that specifically tell you to install OptiFine first. So read the mod instructions. OptiFine is not compatible with CCTV and The Aether.
