4 Smart Ways to Improve Your Gaming Performance and Experience

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

With an estimated 2.5 billion gamers in the world, there are lots of people looking for ways to get an edge over their opponents. While choosing the right game and practising it as much as possible is the best way to enhance your overall performance, there are other smart ideas that are definitely worth trying.

Clean Up Your Computer

A computer that is clogged with old files or using outdated drivers will undoubtedly give you a poorer performance. The starting point here is to remove files you don’t need and run a virus check, to spot any performance-hindering malware.
You should also update the drivers, to take advantage of the latest versions. This will often be done automatically, but you need to make sure that the computer is set to receive automatic updates. 

Although it might sound strange, physically cleaning your PC can also make a big difference. If it is filled with dust or has loose cables then it could begin to struggle once you are playing and it starts to heat up.

Use a Better Graphics Card

If you are using an older or less impressive graphics card it will be limiting your performance. This is especially important on newer games with fast-moving 3D graphics, or where there is a lot going on in the background. 

A higher spec graphic card will give you smoother and clearer images, which will make it easier for you to play the game to a high level. If you don’t want to invest in a new card, another option is to tweak the settings, by doing things like lowering the resolution.

Over-clocking the graphics card is also possible. While this introduces the risk of over-heating the computer, it can be done safely if you take care and don’t push it too far.

Get a Better Chair

Don’t underestimate the importance of sitting comfortably as you play your favourite games. This is a vital factor, as you will lose concentration if you have to constantly shift position to try and get comfortable in a lumpy or unsuitable chair.
Gaming chairs tend to be big, comfortable models that you can easily customise in various ways to suit your needs. This means that you should spend some time setting it up perfectly before you start using it. is a great UK source for gaming chairs.

Some of the best gaming chairs can even be reclined all the way back, to let you rest fully between gaming sessions. You can expect to raise your performance when you are sitting comfortably and are fully rested thanks to a good choice of chair.    

Choose the Right Time and Place to Play

You will probably have noticed that your gaming improves when you are relaxed and can fully focus on the action that takes place on the screen. Compare this to the times when you try and grab a quick game while your head is filled with other things.

The first important point here is the need to have a peaceful place to play. Ideally, you will have a gaming room where you can close the door behind you and forget about the rest of the world for a few hours at a time.

It is also a good idea to choose the timing of your gaming sessions wisely. Work out at what time of day or night you feel sharpest and then try to set aside enough free time to be able to give it your best shot without any worries.
If you give each of these 4 tips a try, you are almost certain to find that gaming becomes even more enjoyable, and that your performance rises at the same time.
