How to Optimize Windows for Best Gaming Performance

Whether you have a brand new gaming PC (opens in a new tab) or an existing one, you should optimize Windows for better gaming performance with a few simple tweaks. Windows isn’t perfect for gaming by default, but with a few tweaks to its settings, you can be sure nothing will get in the way of you and your games.

To preface all of this, you need to understand that the biggest impact on performance is weak hardware. An old graphics card is going to drop your frames per second much more than just a setting in Windows. A gaming PC with only four to eight gigabytes of RAM will have the same hold on your fps in many modern games. Before you change anything, consider upgrading first and set your expectations for how Windows settings will impact your gaming experience. It’s not a lot, but it can add up.
