When I look online for a tutorial to find something like this, I tend to not trust them. Too many have varying positions on settings and even conflicting information sometimes. Does anyon know of some things I can disable in windows to make the system run faster? Things that are just not needed for an everyday gamer. I don't do any server stuff or crunching/folding. I do a lot of game modding and file editing but I always know where those files are, so I don't need any super fast file searching things or whatever. I use it for gaming and watching videos/internet stuff/Autocad/pron/ I just don't want to disable anything that might lead me to an issue I am unaware of. If it doesn't conflict with what I use my pc for though, I would like to see what kind of a difference it really makes with some benches and what not.. So if you could help me take step one in this process, I could later fill in the fps differences. Thanks yas.
