I would think something like this would be good for the desktop pc also. I agree that there would need the direct connect with the pcie slots for max performance . A vga card house with its own cooling and psu would make the inside of my case a lot cooler and less cluttered.

Thats interesting. Ive never heard of that. Thanks.


For reference if you want a clean OS install of Windows 10 and the PC is booting to the OS it's VERY easy to do, just open the start menu, type "reset" and choose the option to Reset this PC.  In the settings window that opens choose Get Started under Reset this PC, select the appropriate options to delete everything for a PC you plan to keep and let it do it's thing.  In about 10 mins-2 hours depending on the PC you'll have a fresh clean windows install and USUALLY all the needed drivers.  Though tools for things like advanced sound settings, keyboard LED controls, newest video drivers etc you'll want to grab for the appropriate places.


I know MSI has been known to bloat the crap out of their newer laptops with "helpful" "tools" so I could see going this route vs the uninstall option, My Aorus thankfully wasn't too bad with only things that actually do something installed (Like the software to control the RGB keyboard) and very easy one click ways to disable stupid features like their own custom on screen display for things like volume and screen brightness.

Thanks. It says on the disk that its a back up disk. But it does not have anything about Gateway,which is the dead LT.

This disk came as a free upgrade from Vista when I purchased the Gateway laptop new.
