i use this XP tweaking software to tweak my PC to no end this morning in order to run my C# App. but bottom line is--> when i run my App with a moderate amount of data flowing thru it seems to run ok... BUT any more than a moderate amount of data seems to run up the CPU usage to ~ 60% on average.. i have no XP "frills" running. i have 1.5 gig memory in my PC.. i only have open slots for up to 2 gig... i could buy another 1/2 gig , but not sure how much juice that will add.
> Does anyone have ideas or recommendations on how to make my PC screaming fast? Maybe gamers have ideas on how to maximize the efficiency of the CPU?
> Will adding a bit more memory to get to 2 Gig help?
> I use a high-speed cable modem Premium service to receive data for my App... 8 megabit (Mb) download upstream = 512 kilobits (Kb) per second... Would upgrading to a T-1 line, or business service help?
Any thoughts appreciated.
