I've recently put a computer together and am just about to make a bootable USB with Ubuntu on it. I wanted to set-up a dual-boot with Ubuntu and Windows 7.
Here are the specs:
AMD 4350 (4.2 GHz, 4-Core Processor)
8 Gigs of DDR 3
GeForce GTX 960 with 4 Gigs of Vram
1 240 Gig SSD
1 1 TB HD
No optical drive.
Question 1. So, I am wondering how much of my 240 SSD should I devote to Ubuntu vs Windows to make sure it runs properly.
I know that with Windows, I can install it on one part of the SSD and then use my 1 TB drive for the programs, but can I do the same with Ubuntu?
Question 2. What should I do when it asks me for how much I'd like to do for the "/" and the "Swap" etc? This part is very confusing for me because I am not fully sure what the different things mean. I know that "/" means the actual system, I think, and "Swap" is virtual ram? This part is VERY confusing for me during the instillation process.
I should mention that I will be using this machine for gaming, in case that's not clear. I want have Linux around if there are games that can use that, which is why I am installing it as a dual boot.
Thanks for your help in advance.
