Get a Directx 9.x Graphics card(like NVidia 79xx) for Windows XP or 10.x card(like NVidia 88xx or 9xxx) for Vista. The current VFM card in Bangalore is 8800GT. For future proof, go with 9800 series.

I would suggest, please give a search on Google or Wikipedia with your specific query which might return many hits containing product info, reviews, etc...

Hello,

If you are looking for "freeware" or "shareware", you might look at www.tucows.com.

Originally, TUCOWS - The Ultimate Collection Of Win-sock Software. Now there are offerings for multiple platforms. There are also many "for sale" offerings as well as freeware/shareware/demo products.

This is an item of the home page today. . .

Everything i've ever tried from tucows has been tested and rated.

FWIW.

Not that i'm aware of specifically. I suspect that there would be some incompatabilities across the wide range of possible hardware in use.

You might want to send a note to the vendor of your "speed-it-up" product and ask if there are any known problems and if they have fix(es) for your particular setup.

I don't recommend using this ready made speed-up software. Instead Keep your PC Clean with a good Temp. file cleaner (like CCleaner) and a good registry cleaner.

Periodically defrag your Hard Disk using a good folder level defrag software like UltimateDefrag.

Do not fill up your OS Drive and make it around 10-30GB for Win XP. Install your Games on the outer sector of the second HDD, if available. If not install in the second partition.

Make your Virtual memory static and keep it in a separate HDD if possible.

Invest on good hardware for high FSB, RAM Ratio and high DMA transfer rate.
