  1. According to a video on LTT (Not sure which one), for 3D stuff, Get LOTS of RAM.
  2. Your computer HAS to have a bottleneck. It won't function without it. If your computer had NO bottleneck, then it would be faster than the fastest supercomputer. Whether it's the CPU or GPU or RAM or Drive(s), that is unknown. But with what YOU have, your CPU SHOULDN'T be the bottleneck. I would suggest checking the Drive or RAM to make sure that they aren't, but I know people who have worse CPU's with similar graphics card and no CPU bottleneck. You could also check in "Activity Monitor" to see if it's using too much CPU. That would give you a good representation of the CPU usage.
  3. Gonna' seem like an unusual one, but the easiest I've found so far for a newbie: Zorin. I haven't "needed" to touch the command line ONCE (Have done to experiment though) and works straight out of the "box". If I wanted to, I think I could run the whole OS FULLY off a USB but not tried yet (Need better USB and ports). Brilliant for the old computers that I needed to put it on. Could be used as a daily driver, but I'm not at that stage yet. Also, VERY easy to get online and install anywhere you want. If anyone has suggestions for any other system that would be worth a try, tell me. I wanna know! I wanna learn! And I'm open to trying out new OS's.
  4. I'm new to Linux, and want to use it as my daily driver in my old computers (Windows shits itself and I refuse MacOS). But I am terrible with coding and the command line. Any useful things that I could use to help? Running Linux Ubuntu "Zorin" 15.3 I think. Warning: Only has 4Gb of RAM on all computers, and OLD hardware. (2010 or before for all of it)
  5. I've got a windows 7 that's at least 7 years old sending out a blue screen with the message: KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR Any ideas on what it is and how to fix? It's been blue screening for over a month and this is the first time I've managed to see what the error message is.
