    Improving Win 8/8.1 performance for gaming

    Any tips?

    All I got was,

    Set the power setting to optimize for max performance.
    Disk Clean up.
    Weekly auto defrag.
    Shut down those worthless Metro tiles.
    Turn off Windows Search - haven't done it yet.

    And how more FPS do you get? 0.5? Worth it.

    What you do, is ditch windows and install Gentoo: https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-309752.html

    and create a gigantic hassle of learning Linux, as to your link.
    Intro: This is not to be taken seriously, but some might think it is. Do not be fooled. This is meant to be humorous in the spirit of funroll-loops. I will, however, be attempting to write the first couple parts as though it were serious (and, of course, as though I were not me). Mostly, the point of this post is for humor, but also to show some people what not to do and how to not do it (covered in the third and final part).

    You can stop unnecessary processes from starting by typing services.msc in the run box on the start menu although I am not sure what benefit you will see from this on modern gaming hardware. Disk clean up and defraging will have little to no impact on your performance. If you have not already I would suggest investing an SSD.

    Yes, go ahead and install Gentoo. Gentoo is a great entry point for someone that might never have used linux before, unlike starting with something like ubuntu and then transitioning.

    It also sucks for gaming.

    And then tinker with Vine forever to play Windows games with 5 times less FPS (if any at all)? Eureka!

    There is also Vine, although it's a little different.
