    You can improve FPS by lowering your graphics settings

    Buying better hardware, closing out programs you don't need/are currently using, screaming at your computer. These things would likely help you.

    On a lower specced system with no upgrade options, looking at what is running in the background on the system is a good idea.

    There are different pieces of software can help lock down the system when you play games. Personally i've enjoyed the ease of use with Razer Cortex. http://www.razerzone.com/cortex/ It identifies the games installed on your system, and you can setup the 'boost' profile that turns off services and exits applications when you start up those games then restarts all of that once the game closes. You can also manually turn this boost on and off if you like.

    I've tried the screaming method, never did much personally :)

    Overclocking! Can't believe nobody has touched on that yet.

    Overclocking both your CPU and GPU can provide some much needed frame boosts

    ^^^ Good point, If you have an older system, alot of the times Overclocking the CPU(Seemed to be more "OC" Oriented 2-3 years ago, where as now OC'ing is becoming more GPU oriented)/GPU & System Memory(If possible, if not, thats fine. Also, be sure that if you have ANY memory rated at over 1333MHz speeds that you have XMP enabled in your BIOS to be sure that they are running at their rated speeds; As the Integrated Memory Controller on most *Intel* CPU's support maximum native memory frequency's of 1333MHz, XMP doesnt change the Chips Maximum Supported memory speed, its essentially Overrides The SPD.

    dc68 had a good idea too: Check your backround processes, how much CPU Usage you have at Idle, how much resources any given one of your backround processes uses; If one is really high, check it out and be sure you know WHAT it does, whether its a system process or essential/non-essential, if it isn't then End it("End Process") and try and find the program associated with it and use Revo Uninstaller to uninstall it, if possible.

    A good software I've used for a while tool for cleaning up your system & registry

    He hasn't mentioned what type of computer he has. If it's a cheapo desktop from Best Buy, I wouldn't recommend overclocking. If it's a laptop of any kind, I wouldn't recommend overclocking. If it's a half decent computer with pretty decent cooling inside of it (Plenty of fans, or maybe even liquid cooling) then yes, I'd recommend overclocking.

    That's true; I was speaking with the assumption He had a desktop, hopefully either custom built or From a system builder(Origin, iBuyPower, Falcon Northwest, ETC)/gaming Oriented. But your right; Xerxes, mind posting what kind of PC you have and its spec's?

    The first thing I always recommend to people is go into msconfig and turn everything off in startup and services that is not essential. Overclocking is a great way to burn up your computer if you don't know what your doing. If you don't reply to this thread any time soon we will know what happened LOL!

    Update the driver for your graphics card, usually they increase fps for games with each update depending on the company.

    A "regular Dell desktop" ? Could you be anymore specific? Does it come with a graphics card, or are you just using a built in Intel HD GPU? If you're using a simple >$500 Dell desktop, I wouldn't expect much out of it. If you want to be able to increase your settings, look into buying a better computer or maybe even building your own.

    Depends on the graphics card too. Older graphics cards don't generally get updated anymore.

    Post your specs, (especially the CPU, GPU, and RAM)

    also get codestuff starter http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/S.../Starter.shtml

    and disable any application that you don't need to automatically start. (since you mentioned a dell PC, there will be many services and startup items that are simply not needed. Keep in mind that disabling a startup item, does not disable the application, it just stops it from automatically starting when you boot the PC.

    If you need assistance, you can post the startup and service list here, and we can help you disable unneeded ones.

    Regardless of how powerful your PC is, you should always avoid unnecessarily running additional code. Not only is it a security risk (more code to exploit), it will slow you down, especially if the program is poorly coded (e.g., who remembers how laggy the battlefield 2 updater used to be?)

    You may not be able to overclock your CPU or RAM, but you can still overclock the GPU, and it is completely safe to do so since they will not allow you to use an unsafe voltage.

    Finally, process explorer in order to monitor the CPU , memory, and GPU usage while you game https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/.../bb896653.aspx

    You will be able to pull up info like this



    GPU at 100% and low frame rates = GPU bottleneck.

    GPU and CPU all at low usage, but system memory is being used by the GPU= VRAM bottleneck

    GPU usage low, VRAM not at 100% but 1 of the threads is using 100% of 1 core = CPU bottleneck

    The technique I'm about to tell you only works on Windows and can be applied to any application.

    First: Find the .exe that Warframe (or any other application you do this with) uses to play the game.

    If you're using steam, go to the install location of steam (by default C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam). Next click steamapps then common. Find Warframe and the executable is probably called something like Warframe.exe or wf.exe. I don't have Warframe, so I don't know what it's called.

    Once you find the .exe for your application, right click on the .exe, click Properties. Click the tab Compatibility. Under settings, check Disable Visual Themes. Also check Disable Desktop Composition, then hit apply.

    Now when you run the executable, your desktop will look funny, minimizing windows will look funny, etc. This is lowering the strain on your CPU. All the funkyness will go away when you close the application (in this case Warframe).

    There are ways to make these changes happen always no matter what your running, but I can't rememeber how to do that. Though it makes older computers/bad computers run much better. If you want to know how to make that permanent just tell me and I will tell figure it out again :)

    I would NOT recommend this method. Doesn't take much to mess up your computer with a few wrong clicks.

    With windows vista and up, they have changes msconfig to prevent you from being able to render windows unbootable. Everything needed to boot properly is stuck on without a manual registry edit.

    But even so, it is best to not mess with items that you do not know the exact function.

    The best way to keep your bootup clear, is after a fresh install, always keep track of your startup items, preboot items, and services when ever you install a new application. Many devs will unnecessarily implement startup items for their applications in order to give the appearance of it loading more quickly, by essentially partially or completely loading it into memory during bootup. Or if a program will use a number of libraries which can cause a longer than normal launch time, some devs will have startup items which will simply do the lengthy loading st startup.

    The down side of this is that you end up with more memory used, and thus a greater likelihood of your page file being used (which always causes performance issues). Some of the worst ones, will actually have the application running in the background whether you want to use it at that moment or not.

    Overall, when you are at a level where gaming performance is not at an acceptable level, then you want to ensure that you are able to allocate as many system resources as possible to the game you are trying to run.

    You can expect a small performance gain if your system is in a poor startup state (e.g., 95-100+ running processes at startup). Cleaning it up a bit can help with periodic performance issues, e.g., hitching.


    Other than that, the biggest performance boost (depending on the bottleneck, will be overclocking. (if you are lucky and your dell uses a motherboard with a different bios, you may be able to overclock the CPU, though it is rare) (dedicated GPU overclocking is always a possibility).
