Im planning on installing fallout 3 goty which is 9 gb overall, on monday and id like to know if losing that much out of the 416 gb i have right now will slow down my computer. This is on my laptop btw.
My spec(i know i can run it)
i5 520 2.4ghz
nvidia geforce 310m
4 gigs ram
If you have 416 gigabytes of hard drive space, 9gb shouldn't be hitting any swap space. Far as I know , Fallout 3 does not put itself into the startup folder so no it shouldn't affect your startup or shutdown time or change your performance in windows.
