    someone tried to hack my Steam

    This is actually something so beautiful I would print it out and mount it on my wall
  2. Usually if you install Windows 10 then Linux, it'll overwrite the Windows MBR with the GRUB bootloader. I quite like the W10 boot menu so I used EasyBCD to add my Linux distro to the W10 boot menu, then overwrote the GRUB MBR. There are tutorials online if you are more interested.

    Your Top 5 Games of All Time

    Took a bit of thinking but Halo 2 Mass Effect 2 Batlefield: Bad Company 2 Civilization IV Flight Simulator X
  4. No problem! Good luck with your build!
  5. The reason I'd suggest the separate partitions would be should you have to reinstall Windows and hence reinstall the games, you wouldn't need to move your files about, as you could just wipe the games partition. There shouldn't be a significant performance impact either way.
  6. My personal recommendations in that case would probably be; SSD: Partition 1: NTFS Windows Install Partition 2: ext4 Linux Mint (You could add a swap partition for mint too if required) HDD: Partition 1: NTFS Windows Games Partition 2: NTFS Files Partition 3: ext4 Linux Games The reason for this is often modern games can be up to 50GB or so installed, and assuming you split the SSD in half, that'd be Windows + 4 games on the SSD to fill it to capacity. Windows also performs a lot better with free space on the drive. Linux on the other hand is much more forgiving. That said, that is purely my recommendation and do with it as you see fit The beauty of modern systems is you can always resize partitions if you find the original layout doesn't work. That said it is better to size them properly first time!
  7. Well my question to you would be how many files do you expect to have? Applications (especially games) tend to be significantly larger in size than documents (save maybe HD movies and large photo libraries), so many would find it difficult to fill 1TB with purely files.

    Hello all..

    Ah good to see you back! I too have just returned from an extended period of absence. Good to see the old lot are still about!
  10. Hey all, sorry I've been away for a while for a variety of reasons, but seasons greetings to you all (you Americans and your 'happy holidays'. Here every holiday is happy especially if skiving off work!)

    I'm an Idiot

    As requested, following return from holiday in Florida I include the instructions for making your own mount. Please note this is not a free license, each use of this requires a royalty to be paid to me of one complete wire clothes hanger. For licenses over 10,000 items, price is reduced to 3/4 a hanger per use. And before you ask, it took too long.

    I'm an Idiot

    Well my patented retention mechanism appears to be working fine for now, and if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Loving the extra 0.3 it's giving me on my Windows Experience Index scores Annoying about not being able to use the extra sticks of RAM, but hey I'm not sure I need much more than 8GB anyway...except for my e-peen of course (playing Rust has recently shortened it significantly). Not sure how old the board is so would they accept an RMA?
