>>345>As a PC gamer
Gamer also here. Forget about gaming on linux. Actually the more crap you install in the OS the worse you are since one of these games can simply phone home or send your data, see red shell. Steam sends your data to Valve all the time and I bet they simply upload your files.
Steam even admits to send all programs you run to Valve>So we can stop cheating programs
What you NEED to have is multiple separate computers.
1) Old/cheap for your personal data that is ALWAYS offline and never connected to the internet. You send data to it by writing things down to a USB stick and transferring this way.
If you are super paranoid use CDs burn a CD (or DVD if the files are large) on the internet connected computer and read it on your offline computer and then destroy the CD physically.
Unless you are targeted with stuxnet crap this is a safe solution.
Really any windows 7 era PC will do and you MUST use a PC not a laptop, no WiFi cards or blue tooth or other crap.
You don't really need a $2000 graphics card or anything fancy here. only your files you brows and collect.
Encrypt the whole thing, you can use linux here.
2) Gaming normie computer, internet connected.
Threat it like a console, never brows the internet with your interests or personal info. Its basically for playing games or specific programs that need windows.
You can also do stuff to have your job interviews or work related stuff here. Basically think of it like Batman VS Bruce Wayne.
All everyone will know is that you do pointless normie things here.
You can think of also using a separate computer for this.
Internet connected stuff, this can be a cheap computer however for risky internet stuff (not you browsing cat videos) never have any personal info in here. Download stuff and transfer to your archive if its important.
Do this on linux you don't play games here so no games and no need for $2000 graphics card in here.
Also don't use retarded crap like:>RGB everything>water cooling>RGB fans>RGB ram
You get the idea, you are literally wasting money on pointless bling here.
look into old or used computers for this or if you are a PC gamer you should have kept your old computers or build them form old parts you have left from upgrading your PC.>>329
