I've been having issues recently with my pc performance while playing WoW, which curiously enough seemed to really escalate the moment I hit 90 on my hunter. I really need to unload all the bloated data such as pictures, music, etc off onto a larger storage drive, as my miserly 500 gb hard drive only has 23gb free, which I'm sure has lots to do with it.
Anyways, this machine when I first bought it sometime during WotLK, was beautiful, giving my 60 fps in what was previouslly known to me as Lagaran, but as the machine filled up and time marched on, performance dimished.
Cue forward to being level 90 and logging the game while inside the Shrine of Two Moons, and my fps would drop from a playable 15 or so fps to 1 fps. Agonizing to say the least. If for some reason I had to tab out to view a web page, well that was even worse.

I stumbled across some info on the Razer Game Booster, figured I'd give it a try, and having installed this now for a few months, it works as advertised. While my fps isn't up to the 60 fps glory days, it's usually more than acceptable. As I'm writing this, I just logged into Orgrimmar and am at 31 fps. 30 fps in Shrine of Two Moons with no lag. I did some LFR the other week with no issues (well my mouse battery died, that was exciting), which would have been impossible prior to using this software.

To summarize; it's a great piece of software and I am very happy with it.

I have had some issues with performance recently. I have always tried to be careful of not downloading a bunch of **** onto my computer. For some reason even with I lower my settings in wow the Sha of Anger always freezes the game up for about the first 30 seconds of the fight. My computer is fairly powerful I think ITs quad core 16 gigs of ram fairly new video card.

So basically, the only thing the booster program does... *reads* is it acts like a driver file update system (which is cool, because from what I've seen, most of those programs will scan your computer then demand you pay money to actually download and update the drivers and PROBABLY give you false positives to boot), and it shuts down unnecessary **** that shouldn't be running in the first place.

I suppose it is good for those people who can't figure out why their games are chugging along when they've got 5+ IM/browser/etc programs running in the background while they're trying to play a game. lol.

I might try it someday on this computer; I doubt it'll make a lot of difference (the only non-essentials I have running are those annoying update services and Antivirus) but who knows...
