comment What are the best free(ware?) PC performance benchmarking options out there?
Just noticed the tag, the poster should have made it clear that they wanted ONLY windows benchmarking software tbh. Also the tag could have been added after the question was posted ;)

comment Is it good practice to create directories in the root of your C: drive?
Ah sorry, yes I can see how hosting applications would cause performance issues. Applications do not fall under the category of personal data and so should really be kept with the OS on an internal drive.

Using an external drive was just an example however if performance is really an issue during development (can't say I've had a problem hosting all of my personal repositories on an external drive) you can just as easily use another partition or drive for your data. The concept of separating your data from your OS still stands.

-1 You would still lose all of your data if you had to fully reinstall the OS. You can always use shortcuts to speed up navigation from the my docs folder to another partition or disk anyway!

comment How do I tell which components survived after a power supply failure?
Are you 100% sure that both the CPU fan and GPU have power? In other words that you've connected the CPU fan to the MB and connected your GPU to your PSU if it requires it.

Ok thanks I've added the output to my answer. To add a screenshot you will need to first take a screenshot using the printscreen button on your keyboard. You will then need to host the image file that is created with a hosting service such photobuck.com. To include the screen shot in your post simply add the following HTML to your post: <img src="URL_OF_YOUR_IMG">

could you also provide the output of the # cat /var/log/messages | grep eth0 command please. It would also be better if you added these to your original question.
