    Yes, that's definitely a beast of a machine (with the price tag to match, I'm sure). In fact, I'd say you'd probably have parts fail before that computer becomes obsolete.

    They're up to 11gb cards now?

    Re: Rediscovering games through mods

    So it turns out that the answer to my modding question was in front of me all along.

    For some odd reason the Twitch Modding tool (formerly Curse) has a default feature that locks any modpack you install, making it impossible to add mods to a modpack build the old fashioned way. I have been trying to build on to good modpacks for a while using various Modpacks on Twitch as the base, and they never showed any of the mods that I installed. Now I know why!

    Now that I know what was happening it is super easy to build custom modpacks. All you need to do is go in to the profile options for the installed modpack in Twitch, unlock it, and you can then search Twitch mod database for compatible mods to add.

    So that brings up a new question: If you were building your ideal modpack, what base modpack would you use, and what would you add?


    My initial though was to build based off of Horizon III (if just because I like their hybrid biome that combines "Lost Cities" and "Biomes o' Plenty").

    The only problem is that Horizons III is at 1.12, and a lot of the mods I want to use right now are still at 1.10.

    I have decided to build from FTB Beyond 1.10, and add Genetics Reborn, Abilities, Lost Cities, Weapon Crates and Roguelike Dungeon mods.

    I'd like to add Twilight Forrest mod as well, but I don't think that one has been updated in a while, and was dropped from the FTB base pack a while ago.

    A little late to the party here, but I would absolutely be down for a DP server to play on. My friends are all too cool for Minecraft, apparently.

    If this is purely a gaming machine, you should consider the 6-core 8700K and a Z370 motherboard. The i9 series is aimed more at a workstation market in the processor design, and this has some latency-related tradeoffs that do affect gaming performance. The 8700K actually outperforms the i9 series in virtually every gaming workload. If you're an overclocker, the gap becomes even wider as the i9 series starts to draw just stupid amounts of power when overclocked, and becomes rather difficult to keep cool. Speaking of which, you might want to consider the X62 if it fits your case. You're throwing goofy amounts of cash at a gaming machine, whats an extra 10 bucks for a little extra radiator space?

    Addendum to the above: Only really relevant if you're using a higher refresh rate monitor. (100/120/144hz) If you're pairing up with a 4k/60hz monitor your GPU will be the bottleneck anyway so quite frankly your CPU wont matter much. And if you're still using a 1080p/60hz monitor with that beast of a system I will find you and slap you in the face with a medium-sized slab of sharp cheddar cheese.

    The extra cores from the 7900X will mostly benefit you if you do some kind of video encoding/streaming for gaming, or if you also do other workstation things either for a job or a hobby. If it really is just "I want to play (insert latest AAA game) at ultra settings/high frame rates" then you should definitely check out benchmarks for the 8700K.

    That kind of behavior really calls for Limburger

    It's only 11gb because Nvida was being cheap and didn't want a $700 card to out shine thier previous $2000 card
