Apologies for a bad title, don't know how to exactly describe it in short.
I'm interested into moving my Desktop to Manjaro as well. I don't use it for much other than to play a few games, some of them with scummy anti-cheat engines, so Windows is pretty much a must. I want to pass through my GPU onto a Windows 10 VM and boot Manjaro as my main system with my CPUs integrated graphics. Never done this before, saw a video a little while ago which peaked my interest into doing this.
I have a crummy Ryzen 3 2200G, which hovers around 80 to 90 percent on all cores in games like Apex (which I'll use as the main example, as it's the most intensive thing on my list) on Windows 10. Not too far off of that are the less intensive games I play. My preferred DE is KDE. With two systems running, background applications for both, likely Firefox in the background as well, could I still run Apex at a reasonably similar performance? I can't really afford such a luxury upgrade for something I don't particularly use a lot.
As well, do I need to activate Windows 10 for a VM? My OEM key was just transferred into a digital license onto my Microsoft account, if it needs activation, would that work?
