i'm currently running build 473 on the following system: xeon x3440 (quad-core, hyperthreaded, 2.66ghz) 12gb ddr3-1600 128gb crucial m4 ssd (os drive) 500gb seagate 7200rpm (drive spigot is on) 75/35 fiber windows 7 pro x64 sp1 latest java 7 x64 i'm already getting fantastic performance, but i'm just curious if running it off the ssd would gain me even more? as far as config tweaks, the only thing i've done is some slight adjustments to growth modifiers. other than that, i'm running stock spigot with no plugins for the time being. this is just a private server for some friends and i. why do i need more, you ask? i don't. i'm just a geek who likes to tweak.
