my first post will probably start an argument, so here goes
I want to set up my laptop to dual-boot, to be a dedicated gaming machine on one side and a 'domestic' multipurpose
pc on the other, is it worth it?
I own an Asus G74sx, i7, 16GB RAM, NVIDEA GEFORCE GTX 560M-2GB, Win 7 OS, dual HDD X 7200... blah blah blah.
I want to set it up for WoW, Dark Knight Arkham City and Diablo III, it already handles 'Arkham City' on high settings brilliantly.
I've never done anything technical like this before, but am an 'experienced noob', never used a tech guy ever, have been gaming since I owned a Commodore 64 (with the cassette loader... aaarrrgh , thru to pc based stuff on my 'generic' Pentium 100, WoW 'Orcs & Humans', Wolfstein, Doom, Duke Nukem, Quake etc etc etc... (yeah, I'm old... kinda, so bear with me ~
Now that 'games' have matured into what we all were hanging out for, with 3D graphics and sound etc (hmmm, whatever happened to 'VR' for the masses, oh well... I just want to boot up and play in the best environent my pc will allow (before upgrading my hardware again, of course).
So, the question is, can I get what I want by 'dual-booting', and which OS should I use for that purpose, I've already decided that Windows 7 is the best OS for 'MY' SOHO , is XP the OS of choice for gaming? any suggestions would be appreciated, I would not have a clue where to start, I'm even open to suggestions re 'overclocking' etc...
thanks guys, am looking forward to your help.
