Hello,

Many forums have a list of Win7 O/S tweaks and system settings designed to streamline gaming and general processing on a system . . .

What are your favorite tweaks or settings? When you get a new system started up, how do you get it ready for awesomeness?

Alienware systems are already awsome just make sure when gaming your using your discrete graphics card not your Intel by either pressing fn+f7 and rebooting or in your optimus or enduro control panel depending on your card nvidia or AMD and have your game to run on high performance and you will have all the awesomeness you need.

Thanks for the quick reply. And the reminder about using the discrete card (nvidia) what is optimus/enduro?

Anyone else have settings they change or windows features they disable to limit system resource use by not critical processes?

Hi btcorrad optimus is the nvidia power saving setting and enduro is AMD power saving settings for when your on battery it uses the Intel HD graphics to save power so you can use laptop longer when their isn't a mains supply hope this explains it

I load all my games through Razer Game Booster. It shutsdown all nonessential processes so that the game gets all the resources. Once you exit the game, it loads up all previous processes again.
