I have recently gotten an "Adobe Creative Cloud" account. I am wanting to experiment with some of the apps, so I was thinking of downloading the entire set of apps for Creative Cloud and just start learning some, see what might, and might not benefit me as an IT guy.
I have a Windows 7 - 64 bit - Alienware MX17 that is about 2-3 years old. No issues with it ever, besides two times overheating/shutting down, where I had to send it to someone and have it cleaned, and thermal paste applied (twice in it's lifetime). Overall I get great performance, and no drag. I work and game on it "a lot". I have 176 free out of 500, but a good bit of that are Comics.
Anyway, I installed Dreamweaver, Photoshop and a few others with no difference on performance. If I just go through and download them all, will it affect my overall performance when gaming or anything else, or does it not matter how much you have installed on it..as long as it's limited on what is running at a given time? Thanks!
