Game booster
 
Anyone tried it out on win7 64bit? does it help performance or otherwise?
http://www.iobit.com/gamebooster.html

I normally dont use **** like this but seeing as my pc is 4yo I want to squeeze every bit of power I can of it. (It still runs quite nice)


Besides this(if it dont work) is there any way beyond OC that can improve performance? I have msconfig cleared and not needed software uninstalled If thats What You are going to suggest

I'd throw in another 2gb of ram in your pc and you should be good to go, this app can't compensate for a lack of memory. The cpu/gpu is still sufficient.

I am planning to make whole new setup after this summer with around 8gb of ram and best hardware possibly avaible to human... but thats in about 4 months so I still have to use this rig.

btw. Really any big difference ddr2 vs ddr3?
My mobo supports ddr2 up to 800mhz only. I could possibly throw ram right now into it if I wouldnt change mobo in upcoming upgrade.

I've tried it before. It's more for killing services and programs that aren't necessary to free up CPU cycles and some RAM. It can do some other things. I am sure it helps, but I don't know if the improvement is noticeable.

Not really worth bothering if you want to update everything else. There is going to be more bandwidth between DDR2 and DDR3, but it's more dependant upon the processor you upgrade it with. (Since the memory controller is on die) A sandy bridge i7 is going to be considerably faster clock for clock than anything you could put into your current board. On top of that you can get a higher OC.

So You are saying that I should stay with this mobo, Get i7 on in and just add ram instead of changing whole mobo?

HizCok, best for you is brand new setup with 2600k i think, with a single maybe 570

Re: Game booster
 
Hell yeah. But I was thinking about 580-590..
There will be time to think about that. Then i will use a proper topic about this and You will all help me out then :) Just a few months more I hope

^^ THIS

I meant that even if you kept the board and got a high end quad, it will still be considerbly slower than a Sandy Bridge processor on an LGA1155 motherboard.

if u already have a clean system, (ie not have 30 unwated services starting up/programs)....then this is a pointless program.

and if ure using this...then maybe its better to learn what is going on ure startup instead of letting a program 'auto' boost stuff for u lol...
