Re: Do I need antivirus and a firewall?

I would recommend guarddog as it passes the Shields Up! test and using ipblock as well.

Re: IP / Port Blocking

Guarddog works well enough to pass the Shields Up! Test, but you may also want to use ipblock. Here is the link to the how-to:

Re: is swap partition necessary

Hope Im not hijacking your thread but, does anyone know if you had a full 4G of memory and were in 64bit mode, would you still need swap memory, and would a 1:1 ratio still be recommended?

Re: Switching to linux

Well the solution for you, my friend, might be to dual-boot your PC. That way you can use linux and still have windows for your games.
