i have wondered how to make ur computer faster without spending money like just to speed up for less lagg in games and others. so ya.
lol i defrag my computer every week and what u mean seany?
Most important when playing games is to have a graphics card that has plenty of ram >= 256mb and its own GPU if possible. Having a decent card makes a lot of difference in frame rates.Defrag often.Have a decent size swap file, 2 1/2 times size of memory.Install plenty of ram. For XP32 bit up to 2gb and XP64 bit >=2gbIf on XP turn off "eye candy" and set the graphics for "performance", that then gets rid of a lot of unnecessary menu animations and fancy graphic stuff that's not necessary when playing games. You could set up a separate login account just for games that is performance related. If not playing on line then you could stop the IP services, stop the firewall and virus checker, turn off the fancy graphics and make sure there are few background services running. Not sure about Vista and games but Vista itself is very processor/memory and graphics hungry before you even start a programme! I would probably recommend wiping Vista or having a dual boot in that situation.That should speed thing up a lot.
