This thread serves as a place to post any tweak or optimization guides that you may find. These guides may relate to optimizing a bloated new operating system such as Windows Vista or tweaking a poorly coded game such as Crysis so you can get a few more frames per second and actually make it somewhat playable on your brand new top of the line $500 videocard. Below are some tweak guides that have been posted on Hardware Analysis in the past. Also there are some other important reference threads that I have posted here. These threads often get lost after they disappear off the Latest Topics page, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a place to post important threads and keep them in a sticky. Please let me know if there are any other HWA threads that deserve a link here.
