  1. It's been a long time since I've run Folding @ Home. Would like to run it again, but really wouldn't want it to impact my gaming experience seeing as that's pretty much all I do on my PC all the time. Would anyone be able to tell me by looking at my specs it would effect performance running it while gaming? Games I play are: Call of Duty Warzone, Fortnite, League of Legends, Minecraft, Overwatch, Red Dead Redemption 2, RuneScape 3.
  2. So I'm just curious, hopefully it is okay to leave a link to a Strawpoll I'll leave it down below. With my old PC I used to shut it off each night before I went to sleep, and would turn it back on in the morning when I woke up. I'd do this daily, but the past few years I've gotten into the habit of just leaving it turned on (Not using Sleep Mode). And about once a week or so I would reboot it. Not sure why exactly I rebooted it, but I guess I thought it felt a bit bogged down after being left turned on so long without a restart. So what do you do with your PC's? Do you shut down each night? Just leave it turned on? Or have it in sleep mode? Also, is leaving it turned on in any way harmful to the PC? I've heard that shutting down and turning on daily/repeatedly isn't good for the components. But I'm not great with computers, so I have no idea. Strawpoll
  3. My environment in my bedroom doesn't get too dusty, I try to get around to cleaning it about once a week. I do notice a bit of dust build up on my desk (It's glass surface) and doesn't look pretty, so yeah I try and wipe it down once a week.
  4. So yeah, I've got my first 'real' Gaming Rig and I want to make sure I keep it in good shape going forward. I will try and ask what comes to mind here, but if anybody has any tips/suggestions, do feel free to post them. 1) How often should I clean my PC? (In terms of dust, I normally cleaned my old PC about once a month it didn't get too dusty, though I didn't want it to build up either. Way of cleaning it I have an electric air duster I've used before with no problems.) 2) Do I NEED an antivirus/anti malware program? On my previous PC I only really used Windows Defender, and kept Malwarebytes installed, though each time I've run a scan I've never found anything. I don't browse any sites where I'd think I would pick something up.
