Video Games are inevitably part of life now, and you will never want this—there are cool games that every friend is playing yet you are unable to play, just because of the sluggish PC performance! For a smoother and faster PC performance and a more life-like experience, you might want to try everything, including download a game booster software. Well, it does not have to be in that way. You can improve your game performance in these 3 proven methods in this tutorial.

Step 1: Defragging hard disk 

Files become fragmented and will physically spread out all over the disk drive when data is read or delete. This will lead to a significant performance hit, especially with games. Because now when you run this particular game, its performance and speed will be degraded because it has to be loaded from spread-out multiple locations on the hard drive (more defragmentation theory and solution). Defragging your hard disk can potentially provide a little extra speed boost.

->Get into This PC, and find Drive C (most often). Right-click on the icon and choose Properties.

->Find Tools tab and choose Optimize. A small window pops up; choose the hard disk you want to Analyze and Optimize.

->As for the Scheduled optimization, Weekly operation is recommended. Or you can defrag your computer every time before you try to dive the immersive world.

Step 2: Update Graphics Drivers

Your graphics card is the key to your gaming experience. In fact, manufacturers, like Nvidia and AMD, would frequently release new graphics drivers that often give major performance improvements, particularly for newer games. The latest version can make a large performance difference in the older games like Skyrim and Starcraft II, according to the benchmark score.

->To open the Device Manager, press the Windows key to open your Start menu, type Device Manager into the Start menu, and click the Device Manager shortcut.

->Expand the Display adapters section to see the manufacturer and model of your computer’s graphics card. Right-click on it and choose to Update the software…

Step 3: Disable SuperFetch and Prefetch

SuperFetch and Prefetch are Windows Storage Management technologies that provide fast access to data on hard drives, which are supposed to boost Windows and applications startup times. For games, loading times and background processes actually increase when these features are enabled. That’s why turning them both off is recommended if you’re an avid gamer.

-> Click Start and go to Control Panel.

->Find Administrative Tools, and then Services. Scroll down to find SuperFetch entry, double-click on it, and choose Disabled.

To disable Prefetcher, we need to open up the registry.

->Click on Start and type regedit in the search box.

->Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SYSTEM>CurrentControlSet>Control>SessionManager>Memory Management>PrefetchParameters.

->Double click on EnablePrefetcher and enter 0 (default value is 3) to disable the Prefetcher. Be careful with the value.
