  1. This is usually the easiest option.
  2. @nicklmg It would be totally cool if you added a calendar event for LTX 2017 to your official calendar :D. I'm not sure if I can go, but if I can make it I am definitely gonna go. Hope it will be a great event.
  3. According to the "Steam Hardware & Software Survey: March 2017" it appears that most users are using quad cores, with 50.08% with a quad core and 43.84% with a dual core. (I am assuming that when the survey says "CPU" they mean core, because I assume that most users don't have multi-socket and CPU setups.) Although the number of users with dual cores is quite high in my opinion, it isn't all that surprising. What I can't wrap my head around is that somehow they claim that 54.39% of those who took the survey have hyperthreading, this number can be found under "Other Settings (Windows)" at t
  4. @JJVGaming Extra RAM only helps if you are already using all of your RAM (if you are using most of it you might want to consider getting more for future proofing). I don't how much of you current RAM you are using but you can check in Task Manager. Otherwise I would just get the 1070 probably.
  5. Unless you are using one of the following applications you take advantage of openCL so by extent multiple GPUs (unless of course they are in SLI) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_OpenCL_applications. Although there are exceptions where games use PhysX and you hypothetically (wouldn't recommend) use two cards. Also it is important to note that most of these OpenCL applications only support one GPU even though they could support multiple GPUs, but they haven't added the appropiate code so they only support one. TL;DR: You can't use OpenCL for multiple GPUs in most consumer applications
  6. @DaemonWarrior44 Do you think that you want to install Linux and Windows? If yes give Linux half of the space and give it 8gb of swap space. Then leave the rest unallocated. If you want to be fancy (wouldn't recommend since you don't seem to be an advanced user) you could have a second partition for your /home directory. Also, yes you don't need a separate partition for games, they will use the same partition as the OS (unless you do the /home partition thing, again I don't recommend it). When you install Windows (assuming you want that) make sure you select custom install and do the partition
  7. @DaemonWarrior44 This video might be helpful. I haven't watched it myself, but it should hopefully have what you want. Skip to 2:58 in the video.
  8. @LinusTech @Slick Just wanted to let you know the video description (for the part two) had incorrect information for the "PYLOT - Caine" song. It incorrectly has links to the "PYLOT - Shadowtask" song.
