comment “Create a restore point” on specific drive - Windows 8.1 Pro x64
What is the closest Windows 8.1 Professional or 8.1 Enterprise has to Windows Server 2012 R2's full server "backup"? For Windows 8.1, would that capability be necessary in the event that the OS is somehow severely corrupted by malware or a bad driver? Or is System Restore sufficient?

comment Searching for PCI-Express 2.0 compatible AMD graphics cards (with CrossFireX)
XFX Radeon HD 6450 2GB DDR3 PCI-E 2.1 Video Card is about $60 USD, so it might fit your budget to buy 4. BTW, PCIe 2.1 and PCIe 3.0 looks backwards compatible with PCIe 2.0, says wikipedia.

I also don't get why disabling system protection on drive "C:" automatically disables system protection on all other drives. Is there a sound, logical reason for that? I'd want to reserve space on drive "C:" for apps (e.g. "Program Files"), and store restore points and backups on a different HDD/SDD, unless there's a reason why that's a bad idea.

comment Preventing the power supply (PSU) from blowing the motherboard or vice versa
The first two sentences in your comment... I could really do without. But you took time to write a thorough response , so that is my upvote to your answer. I don't know what motivated you to write all this. I'll assume it's all good intentions.

comment Preventing the power supply (PSU) from blowing the motherboard or vice versa
Answer looks clear to me. I was wondering if buying a redundant PSU would meet the criteria of a sound PSU you listed, particularly the first bullet point? They are considerably more expensive though. I lost data during a power outage last night, so it seems to be worth the price.

@BigChris I don't like it either. Hope this vote restores balance. You at least answered my question and gave suggestions, so it deserves an upvote anyway.

comment Preventing the power supply (PSU) from blowing the motherboard or vice versa
Thanks for the suggestion in the first sentence. So a surge protector and uninterrupted power supply can be useful here? I had a motherboard or two go up in smoke, depending upon what PSU I connected to it. I don't really know the reason why it happened. I'm not here to argue, either. I guess it wasn't the PSU, after all.

comment Preventing the power supply (PSU) from blowing the motherboard or vice versa
I was conscious of that, not writing out the facts to support my statement. Lazy maybe, but there's a bulleted list of questions that follow my claim. In those questions, what I see is problems about motherboards and PSUs.
