  1. Hello I was wondering what's the maximum number of games people have installed on their computers? I have a laptop with 2.4 GHZ T8300 dual core processor, 320GB hard drive with 164 remaining and 4GB RAM and I have installed 8 games. When will the point come when performance will be affected, if at all?

    'When will the point come when performance will be affected, if at all?'

    There should not generally be a problem with adding any amount of games, since all you are talking about when not playing them is storage, up until you run out of disk space.

    Note: run out of disk space would NOT necessarilly be 0 remaining since you MUST have some hd space for virtual ram (swap file) and this, if system administered, can grow or shrink during a session. Also, you would want to keep some room for defrag operations.

    i had about 6 games installed on a 160 gb hd

    mainly crysis,the orange box w/ l4d,ut3

    i had about 40 gb left i dropped crysis and my performance boosted

    it also has to do with how big your hd is and or if u have a secondary really


    personally laptops in my opinion are not really made for gaming regardless whats in them
