    Specs:
    • Intel i7-4960X extreme (hexcore, 3.6GHz)
    • 32GB RAM (4x8GB DDR3 1866MHz Corsair Dominator Platinum modules)
    • Corsair H100i water cooling
    • EVGA NVidia GeForce GTX 980 graphics card
    • 2xSamsung 850 EVO SSDs (256GB, thinking of upgrading these to 1TB drives)
    • Seagate 2TB 7200rpm HDD
    • Asus Sabertooth X79 motherboard (Socket 2011, Intel X79, DDR3, ATX, PCI Express 3.0, USB 3.0, Thermal Armor, Asus SSD Caching)
    • Corsair CX750 750W PSU
    • Samsung 24x SATA DVD writer
    • NZXT Phantom 530 case
    Other peripherals:
    • Corsair Vengeance 2100 headset
    • Corsair K70 keyboard (Cherry MX Blue switches, LED backlit (red))
    • Logitech G302 Daedalus Prime mouse (2 thumb buttons, blue lighting)
    • iiyama prolite E2274HDS monitor (21" 1920x1080, biggest thing that fits under my shelf. May upgrade when I'm able to move out)
    OS:
    • Linux Mint 17.1 & Windows 8.1 dual boot (one on each SSD with partitioned HDD (ext4/ntfs) for data)

    It's been a couple of months, and I haven't found anything I can't run on the highest graphics settings yet. A few people have suggested Crysis 3, but I haven't got round to it yet.
    This build is a bit on the expensive side, but it's freaking amazing.

    Code & games mostly, although sometimes stuff like virtualisation, which is pretty resource intensive.
    Incredibly.
    Most likely the modpack bundles several optimisations which give you a better performance increase than you're losing with the extra content.
    Mint is a dream for programming stuff - gave up with Apple, they screw with your install every version upgrade, removing various development packages - although I suppose people that use Macs now are less and less developers and more and more just everyday consumers (which, in Apple's defence, is more profitable). Windows is really bad for C++ & Python, and a bit worse for Java.
    No such thing :p
