How to optimize your CPU, GPU and RAM for optimal gaming performance

Optimizing your system and processor can greatly increase your gaming performance.

While the best-performing CPUs and GPUs tend to be the ones that are capable of running at the highest frame rates, you may need to adjust the settings on your computer or device to accommodate your needs.

Here’s how to adjust your settings for optimal performance.


Turn off video playback.

Video playback can make your system too heavy.

Turn down the number of frames per second, the frame rate, and the resolution to reduce the amount of time your system is stuck on the loading screen.

This will also reduce the likelihood that your game will freeze or freeze for too long.


Turn up the CPU.

The more cores in your CPU and the more memory in your system, the better your gaming experience will be.

As you play more games, the more cores your system will have.


Optimize the GPU.

If you’re using a GPU that can handle more than 4GB of VRAM, turn it down to as low as you can.

If your GPU can handle 3GB of memory, you can turn it up to 4GB.


Use less memory.

As more memory is required for your system to operate, you should use less memory and fewer graphics cards.


Turn on the audio.

Sound settings can also affect the experience of your game.

Lower the volume and the sound quality will be much improved.


Turn the speakers up.

As gaming becomes more demanding, higher-quality speakers can help reduce the sound level of your system.


Turn your audio device down.

You can adjust the sound volume, too.


Turn all graphics cards down.

Your system will be able to run at higher frame rates and at higher resolutions, but you’ll have less power to use for the games that you’re playing.


Limit the amount you use your system for.

Turn them down to a minimum.


Limit your games to one hour a day.
