Visual Settings for Better Performance is not worth it, only gives 2-5 FPS Increase.

Reducing Ping in online games is also not worth, It all depends on how close you live and how big your Jitter is.

However that CPU Core Parking Utility is a big help because Windows 7 can't Park CPUs at the right time.
