Windows 7: Optimize Windows 7 for gaming

Optimize Windows 7 for gaming

How do you guys optimize/tweak your own computer? I was surfing the internet yesterday and came across few software I'm not sure about. First is the game booster claiming to boost gaming performance and then I found cacheman and cleanmem. I don't know about cachman but I've heard recommendation about cleanmem. Other than those I've also found tune-up utilities from this page - I don't trust most software I heard but too much good comments is said.

for Win7, neither are needed. There was a thread on Cleanmem CleanMem, the only memory optimizer that really works ! but the value of it is dependant on things being ran. Windows cleans out the RAM better than previous OS's.

If you want to look at how to get your computer running fastest, look here: Optimize Windows 7

Windows 10 Pro (x64)

If you don't have a machine that can handle gaming to begin with, NOTHING IS GOING TO HELP. I like to play games but I have a crappy computer to play them. I looked at all those means up upping performance. It didn't make one bit of difference. So you know what, I just leave Windows 7 in its default state. No point in messing with it.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

Windows 7 is optimized for gaming, provided you don't bog it down with third party apps running in the background, such as IM apps, etc. If you use Windows 7, along with common sense, you are ready to go as a gaming platform.

regarding SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
When using diskpart, I'm noticing it never wants you to format when I go back in to the installer. Am I correct in assuming diskpart will format the drives with NTFS? Do I need to realign the SSD on the reinstall? Thank you :)
