Topic: Max Performance Help.
I have done a few tweaks to my N10j to help up the gaming performance a bit and I'm still trying to get it to run better. Here's what I've done:
-OC'd to 2.0ghz
-Windows XP Home
-Set nVidia graphics settings to performance
-Installed DirectX 10
At the moment, the game I'm trying to get running better is WoW. I just had a few questions to try and make it run overall a lot better.
-How significant would pushing an additional .1ghz out of my processor affect anything?
-Would Windows 7 be better to run? Or is there a small, lite version of Windows XP I can use?
-Is there specific things I can do in the control panel to tweak for better performance? If so what, and what does it do?
-Is the fact that I'm Dual-booting with Ubuntu affecting anything?
-On WoW's video settings, what is Multi-sampling and what should it be set at for best performance?
-Does Audio have any effect on FPS?
-How significant of a drop does Addon's have to framerate? Currently I use Sexymap, xperl, Grid, Clique, quartz,pratt messenger, bagnon, titan panel, Satrina Buff Mod, DBM and Dominoes.
-Is there a good way to tell what the bare minimum should be running in the background for the OS and a way to clean out stuff that isn't needed?
A lot of this is probably rather noobish questioning but I just want to make the best of my n10, I've also tried OCing me GPU to no real avail, thanks for you time.
