Game installation on Windows 8.1 with ssd and hdd

Hello,

I recently built a new computer. Runs like a dream but some of the games want to install in the x86 program files directory on the SSD. Does it matter whether I install games on the x86 directory prog files, regular prog files via the SSD or the prog files on my 1 TB HDD.

In short I have 3 PF folders, 2x on the SSD 1 is x86 and 1 on my 1TB HDD.

I thought the x86 was 34 bit but that's the default installation for Diablo 3 for example. Please let me know if it really matters whether installed on the x86 PF, or regular PF, or the PF I created on my 1 TB HDD. I just don't want to install all the games into the x86 folder.

Don't want to have any compatibility issues if some games can only be installed on 34 bit.

Thanks,

-Dan

    None of that matters. If it runs, it runs.

    And for clarification's sake - x86 = 32 bit, not 34

    Thanks for the correction, I was just confused about it defaulting to the x86 folder. I didn't know if there would be any compatibility issues by installing a game on the 32 as opposed to the 64.

    Thanks,
