I've got a quad-core Phenom II at 3.2Ghz, 16 gigs of RAM, and a 1GB GeForce GTX 550 Ti. Oh and Java 7. Why does Tekkit take so long to start up? I can run vanilla with a 256x texture pack on all max settings and I get no lag at all, but I have to put Tekkit on Fast graphics and it's still always between 40 and 50 fps. I don't like playing on anything but Far because any less than that creates a weakness for pvp. Is there a way to make it faster, or do I need an even faster computer? If the latter, which component should I upgrade for maximum gains? Thanks!
