Could anyone tell what is the better setting, programs or background services for a game & power user machine?



BTW if anyone is aware of any sites that can tell me what services I can disable, I would appreciate it? Thanks

well, unless you're running a service and you want it to have priority over certain programs on the computer, set it in program mode. you'll notice things being more responsive...

never ever ever ever ever set it to background services... your normal applications will run so %^$%^ slow it'll be like you're on a 386.



As for system cache, switch to that, you'll gain alot better proformance

Ok thanks :), timdorr about priorities, say I am running a game such as JK2, could I set the priorities of the program up one more notch without any harm to the system and would I notice any improvements?



btw I have my processor scheduling set for programs and my memory usage set for system cache.

you probably won't notice too much of a difference, so it's kinda more work than it's worth to up the proccess priority.
