    Just a few useful links

    Post by Nulli on Tue Apr 29, 2008 2:07 pm

    I was tired of studying for finals. So threw a few links together. Might help anyone trying to tune up their computers before going into spend every free waking moment playing the game mode many of us know so well.

    For you XP users here is something to look into. SP3
    download is available. It looks like the performance increases are marginal but
    do exist. XP
    SP3 performance gains - Nothing to write home about
    . XP SP3 vs.
    Vista SP1 - Which is fastest?

    XP SP 3 Download.

    If you have Vista and have not installed SP1 yet this thread
    might help. Microsoft
    to begin automatic distribution of Vista SP1 today

    SP 1 (32 bit)

    SP1 (64 bit)

    The latest Direct X (March 13,2008)


    The new Firefox is insanely fast. It seems stable I have
    been using from day 1 and very happy with it. Firefox 3.0
    Beta 5 - Fastest browser yet!

    3.0 beta 5

    If there is any one program I believe every windows based
    computer should have it is Process Explorer. It is Task Manager on steroids.
    You can see what handles and DLLs you have open and look all the way to root
    of processes. Great when tracking down problems or trying to
    remove and bits of removed software. Follow install directions and go to
    options to replace Task Manager you can always toggle it off and task manager
    will be there if you uninstall Process Explorer
