I used to try to figure out a lot of computer speed up tips back when I had a slow computer..and I just wanted to share some of the stuff that helped me.
Computer speed is a combination of many different factors, and there are many things you can do to maximize it. For example, one of the things I did on my old computer was to add a new graphics card.
It was a pretty nice Nvidia card, which greatly helped the speed of my system. Graphics cards add memory which greatly helps the speed of your computer and make it a lot more responsive.
What I do for computer speed
A general rule I like to go by is, if you’ve already maxed out the amount of RAM in your computer, and it still isn’t fast enough for you, just add a better graphics card with a good amount of memory. That will really help your computer speed.
Another thing to do is keep the inside of your case dusted out regularly to keep the air flowing and keep all your components working properly.
I always keep my computer running, because turning it off and on alot shortens the lifespan. I set all my graphics card and visual effects options to the highest performance so squeeze as much speed as I can out of my computer.
Also, defragment your drive often. Clean out your junk files, and use CCleaner to clean your registry out safely, especially if you often install and uninstall lots of programs.
You can also disable error reporting and search indexing which will give you a little performance boost. And disabling services that you don’t use always helps.
