Right now I have a 10 gig partition for windows. I also have Steam and hl2,cs:s,dod. Thats it. It shows 2.78 gigs left, but when I try in extract direct x 9.0c, it gives me an error message about not having enough memory or space or somthing, haha. Am I not giving windows enough space?

windows needs a cushion space of like 6-8 GBs of space to keep the windows OS as stable as possible ..



Mac OS X needs 7-9 GBs of space for VRam not Video Ram, its Virtual Ram aka Ram Useage on the HardDisk after all the Real Ram is Used UP :o
