I'm wondering what version of OpenGL is best for Minecraft. Currently, I'm running Windows XP (2G RAM), OpenGL 2.1, JRE 5 (and Minecraft 1.2.5, haven't downloaded the latest yet).
Minecraft runs well (although I have Render Distance set to Normal, or it's too slow).
Would it be worth the hassle, of upgrading/installing the latest OpenGL (4.2)? What effect would it have on Minecraft, if any?
Update: I'm running 32-bit Windows XP, with a GeForce 7600 GS 256MB (fairly old, I know). As for OpenGL, it came with XP. When I checked with an OpenGL Viewer, it told me the version was 2.1. Whether that was what came with XP, or was installed by Minecraft, I don't know.
