    oh and its ip is 75.127.240.93:25565

    Andrew, until the server is finished you were told it's prohibited to give out the IP address. I had 3 people come on today because of this reply and you need to take it down.

    posted a message on The perfect vanilla server!
    Quote from Xolarix

    The perfect vanilla server is just a minecraft server without any plugins whatsoever. But it appears that just is impossible to find.
    What you describe there in your OP is any common server without any specific game-changing mods. Plenty of those can be found.

    At the very most, you need a whitelist against unwanted people, and an anti-Xray mod, and if neccesary, a certain radius where PvP and building is not allowed. That's it. Anything more would be overkill and ruining the vanilla gameplay.

    I'd say that player griefing and combat is just part of how multiplayer should be. Outsmarting other players is a lot tougher than outsmarting mobs, and the chances of failing are much higher than you're used to. But that's the point. You don't go on multiplayer to play like you're in singleplayer.
    But yeah, it won't be a server for 12-year-olds who are easily offended when their stuff gets blown up :P


    I don't think you understand what multiplayer is then. It's impossible for anything to be considered 100% perfect by everyone playing the game. No matter what, everything is opinionated and should stay that way. Also, age has nothing to do with how someone reacts to all of their work ruined. I'm not saying that it can't have anything to do with it, but it usually doesn't past the age of 10. Frankly, that statement was merely douchey.

    my last post is it. mobo with SLI. IF you happen to find one that is cheaper with SLI, it is probably **** unless there is some ridiculous sale going on.


    Alright, I'm all set to build a PC now! Thanks for the help everyone!

    Thanks guys, but I think I have my system down. I'm saving a ton by getting two superclocked 2GB EVGA Nvidia GeForce 560ti's with VRAM really cheap. The only thing that you could help me with is a version of the above build with a motherboard that can do SLI.

    Meh. Either way the 7850, regardless of bad benchmarking, It offers better price to performance and is good for your budget.
    (I am not familiar with Nvidia's lower spectrum of cards so I don't know, but Nvidia really doesn't much ground in the sub $150ish range, at least from what I have seen, so your best bet is on AMD and the 7850s)

    The Radeon 7850 curbstomps the GTX 650 and any other Nvidia card for the price range (uses more power, but really isn't much if you live any modern country/area as usually power is quite cheap)
    Also has 2GB of dedicated ram for GPU compared to 650's 1. Even against the 650 Ti Boost, the 7850 still for the most part is better. (not fanboying here, it is the truth)

    http://www.hwcompare...radeon-hd-7850/

    Fast RAM is unneeded as only APU really take advantage of it in most circumstances. (especially this budget and use)

    The CPU is much better for the buck since its performs better than the A10 for $40 around less(just doesn't have integrated graphics which you dont need with a graphics card.)


    How necessary to it's performance is it that I get a graphics card?

    Assuming budget is $460
    Assuming you don't need peripherals
    Assuming you aren't going to upgrade to an dedicated graphics card(power will not be enough)
    Assuming you just need a no frills pc that will get the job done.
    The 2133 mhz RAM is good for APUs (faster would be better but 2133 is good for budget.)
    Assuming you are not overclocking (otherwise get a CPU cooler and a better motherboard for that matter, again budget)


    I don't have a need for a case or optical drive, but I do need speakers and a keyboard. Thanks for the idea of using Ripjaws RAM, though. It reduced my build's price to $416. Also, since I plan on upgrading almost everything over time, I was thinking I should get a 500W power supply. After adding in the CPU you used I got it to be THIS. Is there any way I can get a lower price out of it?

    Guys, I need help with PC PARTS, not the OS. I already know what I'm going with and to keep this discussion of OS' to a minimum, I'm not telling what that is. So if anyone would actually like to help, please feel free.

    There never was an argument going on here, but sure. Why don't you need a case? It won't free up too much money but it can be a little better.


    Because I'm currently haggling a guy on ebay to give me a clear full tower case with 3 fans and n optical drive for only $15.

    Here's my updated rig (with some help from a friend): http://pcpartpicker....doom/saved/31JB
    Is this the best I can do? Keep in mind that I don't need fans, an optical drive, a case or a monitor. Those I already have. Also, the price trends are at the highest they've been for a while on these specific parts so expect that what I linked to will get as low as $410, minimum.

    Hey, can we all get off the subject of W7 vs W8? Also, I no longer need a case, fans or an optical drive wo be purchased through PCPartPicker. Even though the price trends have changed, can I do any better with these parts out of the way?

    Significantly better: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2cYF3
    Swap to an A8 if it's too much.
    It doesn't have a disk drive, but you can use one from your current computer.


    Thanks for the help but out of curiosity why should I get Windows 8? 7 seems good enough and I'm much better with it.

    So I plan on building THIS rig pretty soon and have a few questions since I'm pretty new to the world of building computers...
    1. Will the parts I chose come with their respective cables?
    2. Can I do any better without going over $460?
    3. Are there any problems with it or things that I should change before ordering?
    4. At maximum graphics (in Minecraft), what do you think the framerate will be?

    Thanks for the help in advance!

    The best way to get around this is simply to buy a new mouse. One that specifically has 2 separated buttons. Since you're on a Mac I'd also say to get a high end, programmable one like the mice made by Mad Catz (though they can get expensive). If you're not willing to spring for a $30-$120 mouse you can just get any old PC mouse and it'll work fine.The fancy mice with extra buttons are just to make the gameplay smoother and faster paced by toggling keys to the mouse buttons. I highly suggest them.
