Things to Consider for Best Gaming Experience with Your PC


What We Should do to Optimize PC for Gaming?

PC games are becoming heavier day by day due to increased graphics details. So maintaining a PC for best gaming performance is necessary if you are a serious gamer. Below are the guidance how to accelerate your Windows PC for best gaming experience.

  • Antivirus Silent Gaming Mode

Suppose you are playing a game and antivirus detect any threat then your running game is paused and its window is minimized to taskbar. Thus your game will be interrupted. Most of antivirus software have silent gaming mode i.e. after enabling this mode antivirus automatically fix security problems and do not prompt you to take an action.

  • Use a Complete PC optimizer

While playing an advanced PC game your PC must be dedicated to it and it should not be slow due to defragmented hard drives,registry and RAM. You must scan and optimize your PC daily with a good system optimizer software such as System mechanic or Iobit Advanced system care.

  • Free the most of RAM

There are many idle processes run in background and waste PC RAM. For best gaming performance most of your PC RAM should be free. Use a RAM optimizer software to free RAM. Chilly memory optimizer is a very good tool to optimize RAM and it can also optimize RAM for any running process.[link]

  • Increase the Virtual Memory

To increase the gaming performance you can increase the virtual memory of hard drive in which the game is installed. You can increase the memory: by:-

Right click on my computer icon and select properties > Advanced > Virtual Memory

Here you can change the virtual memory of any drive. You can increase the virtual memory and also undo this action anytime. It will boost the computer gaming efficiency.

What should be the hardware configuration for different type of PC games?


  • For low detail 3D games ( e.g GTA Vice City )

Intel 1.6GHz single core processor, 512 mb RAM, 128 Mb on board video memory and 80GB hard drive space

  • For medium detail 3D games (e.g. GTA San Andreas )

Intel 2+ GHz Single or dual core processor, 1Gb RAM, 512 mb video memory ( XFX 9400 GT card or any other) and 160 Gb hard drive space

  • For High Detail 3D games ( e.g. GTA4)

Intel 2+ core2duo processor, 2+Gb RAM, 1GB  video memory ( GTS 250  card or any other ) and 360Gb or more hard drive space

  • High end PC hardware configuration for gaming is given below

Intel Core i7 920,Nvidia Geforce GTX 480,8GB RAM ( supported ) 500+ GB Hard Drive space

Note: More is the free hard drive space and better is the gaming performance

  1. Nice tips, shariq…

    I will send this link to my friends. They will love to see these tips which consider for best gaming experience.

    Thanks 🙂

  2. I disagree a bit with you. Increasing the Virtual Memory works well only if you have less RAM. With 3-4 GB RAM, you don’t need it much.
    In fact, assigning too much virtual RAM can slow down the computer because HDD is slower than RAM!

  3. @shariq
    a 100GB or 320GB hdd will give a user same performance. so what you have written about hard disk space is somewhat misleading.

    you seem to have wrongly understood the purpose of VRAM. its used when system runs out of RAM space. so it can only help system’s performance and never hinder it. the part about hdd being slower and cheaper than RAM’s flash memory is true.

  4. Thanks for comments.
    When a process executed then cpu utilize the physical memory 0r RAM but in case of insufficient physical memory it can use virtual memory ( hard drive free space ).
    There is no limit of PC games graphics details / definitions so it is better for smooth gaming if we use more free hard drive space to optimize virtual memory.
    In case of low physical memory increasing virtual memory can optimize executions. We can normalize increased virtual memory any time. I have tested it myself.

  5. Hi Rajat,
    I know about VRAM but I had read in my tech mag that allocating too much VRAM can cause slowness. This is because Windows uses it even normally when RAM is not full and if it has big size, the time to read data will increase as HDD are whole lot slower than RAM(around 7-10 MBps as compared to 12+GBps)
    Isn’t that correct?
