Network performance and throughput depends on a lot more than the TCP global parameters.

For example the network switch/cabling in use plays a part in this - if you have gigabit NICs on the computers but only a 10/100 network switch you won't get maximum throughput between the computers. There's also the factors of what applications are been used, what you are doing on the computer at the time, what other network devices are doing at the time, etc.

I haven't had to change any of the global parameters (really only would do if there was an issue requiring it) and had no issue with performance on my home computer.

It would depend on your setup - how the systems are connected, what they are doing, what you are trying to achieve exactly, how you want to measure this, etc.

Excellent point about switch/router port speeds.  You should also ensure you are using at least a CAT5e cable (or "higher").  Cables of less than CAT5e will not support speeds over 100Mbps.

best practice is don't change what isn't broken. About the only setting I look at is the MTU setting and check that it is just below or at the network maximum MTU

without knowing what you are trying to achieve we cannot really give a specific answer.

What kind of traffic are you trying to optimise? where is the traffic likely to be flowing to/from?

if you just want a 'faster' connection in general, those settings won't make much difference so best to leave them alone.

start with a speedtest and see what you get BEFORE you change anything. That way each change will allow you to see its effect.
