Game Booster auto-tweaks Windows for better performance

There are plenty of hardware-free solutions for squeezing a little bit more gaming performance out of your Windows system. Heck, there are even a number of tools built right in to Windows that you can use to cut down on background performance drains before you fire up your favorite game - like services.msc, for example.

Still, it's kind of pain to go in there and selectively turn off unwanted services all the time. Game Booster makes the process totally painless. It's similar to AMD's Fusion tool: when activated, Game Booster will turn off any unnecessary Windows services, do a quick RAM sweep, and offer to close any other programs that are currently running.

Game Booster is useful in non-gaming situations as well - keep it handy to quiet background process noise whenever you're firing up any processor-hungry application.

Game Booster is a free download, and it's compatible with Windows XP, Vista, and even Windows 7 - good news for those of you who are beta testing and looking for compatible tweaking apps.

I've seen tons of these apps. They change some registry settings and claim to give your games a lot of more performance. You can do the fixes yourself. Right-click My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced -> under the Performance Tab, click Settings. On the Visual Effects tab, untick everything.

If you have more than 2gb ram this shouldn't make any difference.
