    I dont see why you would need this if you have plenty of ram?

    because, it turns off unnecessary processes, and optimizes a few things to help performance.

    and I never said it was for me. It's mainly for R1 users overall. Just helping out those people that still want to game. It eliminates CPU hogging apps as well.

    Exacyly. Every single application in ram use a few CPU cycles , shuting them down free the CPU a bit for games.

    I have been using Gamebooster sense I got my R1 on any game that is CPU intensive. It really helped with Metro2033

    So.. Out of curiosity. How much memory do you ACTUALLY save by using this app?

    About 200 Mb for me.

    Adding every CPU cycle that thoses 200 Mo program / services ram uses , you get a great performance boost. Of course , you won't be able to play game you should not without the software , but it helps having sometimes 3-5 more fps with that soft if your computer is a bit limited ( just like the M11X is with his CPU , R1 talking )

    You can boost the amount of ram by killing a few program that you installed on your computer but did not want during gaming ( for exemple , iPod services, antivirus or else ) , as GB monitor when you're in game or not and re activate thoses services after the game end.

    Ok guys, I downloaded Game Booster 3 just to see if I could squeeze out any more FPS in BF3 beta.
    I think I get an extra 1-2 FPS and it runs a little bit smoother but that is probably just the placebo effect.

    Anyway, in Game Booster it has an option to Diagnose, so I clicked it to see what it would come up with.

    It spits out a little event log and at the end of it I get this weird message saying:
    The NVIDIA OpenGL driver has encountered an out of memory error. This application might behave inconsistently and fail.

    Would someone be able to try it?

    I want see if it is a common error or just something wrong with me...

    No such issue on a R3.
