    Did you try to format it first?  If not, it will need to be formatted the same as the other partition so from what I could see, you might need to format it using the NTFS format type.

    No, not the c: drive.  The part you want to merge.  You can not merge two different types of formatted space.  Examples are NTFS, GPT and several others.  You can not merge an NTFS partition with a GPT partition.

    To ensure that I don't screw things up when doing these types of things such as merging, creating, partitioning, etc., I use the AOMEI Partition Assistant.  It's free and easy to use.  Here's a link:

    Sort of....  To format the space on a drive it must only be partitioned.  But during the partition process it will be allocated.  When you partition the drive, it will assign a drive letter to it.  As an example, when you partition the space you are talking about, it will partition it to "Drive D", then, after it is then partitioned and the drive letter assigned, you will be able to format the drive using the appropriate type of format.  In this case, NTFS.  Then, once the drive is then formatted, you can "merge" drive D: with Drive C: thereby enlarging the overall space assigned to Drive C:.

    You just have to remember that each operation is a different step in the process.  In the top left corner of the Partition Manager software is an "Apply" function.  So what you would do is click on the space you want to work with and select the function to partition.  Then click "apply".  Then go back to that same space and do the function to format and then click apply again.  You can do the steps one at a time or with some of them you can select a couple of functions and then click "apply" and it will perform all the functions one at a time until they are all complete.
     
    Once it is all complete, then you have to reboot the system for the changes to take effect/affect.

    It isn't hard to do, just screwy to get the processes in the correct order not forgetting about the apply function.  After you have done it a couple of times and you get familiar with it, you will better understand the process and how it works and in which order each function takes place.

    The software won't let you mess up.  If you try to do something out of order, it will let you know.  That is one thing that I like about that software.

    No problem.  I am in California and will be home for about 15 more minutes.  After that I need to run an errand to go pick up a machine from a guy here in town that is looking for some repairs.  I repair computers in my town to keep me busy and to maintain some knowledge about what I'm doing and I don't charge for my labor.  Only parts.  I'm not rich by any means but the bills get paid using my retirement funds and I like to help people that can't afford to pay for computer services.  Current rate here where I am is $65 to $80 an hour and the majority of people here can't afford that.

    One last thought though.  As with any major operation like you are undertaking, don't forget to back up copies of all your important files and data such as documents, pictures, letters, etc.  Always try to be prepared for the worst, no matter what you're doing.

    yes but you may have to format the unused space before you merge.  Not quite sure right off the top, it's been a few months since the last time I did it.  Don't forget to hit the apply thing up in the top left corner of the screen.

    Why does it have to be all or nothing? There is Christianity, and then there are extremists, just as there are in any religion. It's not anti-Christian, it's anti-extremism. One of the protagonists appears to be a pastor, so there are Christians on both sides:
     
    Also, you have a really warped and disturbing understanding of Islam to draw that conclusion.

    PSU if fine, CPU cooler is fine, you can also keep same case I guess.
     
    You only need:
    SSD: Samsung evo 850
    Motherboard: Z170 krait / Z170 pro gaming / deluxe (whatever you can afford)
    And some DDR4 ram ... 16GB is a new standard  
     
    Is it worth buying over ebay? Well you can get it for half the price, but you will have to pay import taxes and charges. At least I had to when I was ordering anything worth more than 50$. Also there are scammers on ebay, so if you decide to buy from ebay, look for seller that have a lot of feedbacks on that particular GPU that you are buying.
    About GTX 1070 ... just get any version that you can afford. They will all perform the same. I would get one with 2 or more fans, that's for sure.
     
    And I agree with you buying K version of CPU even if you don't want to overclock (yet).
    Maybe after some time you will feel more comfortable and push that CPU to it's limits

    If seller have high reputation, it should be fine.
    You are also covered by ebay and paypal + you can always request chargeback from your bank.

    uhhh just hit download, then run the executable. It will ask you to select a location to extract just the install files (you can delete them after) then it just runs the real installer. Easy peasy.
