    Default Windows Aero ON/OFF Performance ?

    Simple Question Straight to the point

    Windows Aero - Enable or Disable

    PC specs on the left the machine is used for gaming

    I have read that Aero increases Performance "Doesent make sense to me"

    I have read that Aero uses up your GPU and Decreases Performance "Kind of makes sense"


    What i would like to know is it worth disabling it and having to re customise my task bar and themese manually with hacks for the performance boost

    or

    Is it better to keep Aero on because with my pc specs i wouldnt even notice a difference with it on or off other than it looking a hell of alot better ?


    Thanks in Advance

    Basically, I would do some self research on that and see if you notice a difference.

    Although I think having Aero on utilizes your RAM more than it would a GPU, but don't quote me on that, it's just theory.

    Windows aero uses gpu in 2D i dont think that will make a difference when in 3D like when playing a game.

    Leave Aero on. Simple reason is this:

    Even IF it does make a performance difference, it will be so miniscule as to not ever be noticed. Essentially, if someone has to turn off Aero to make a gaming difference, it's time for a graphics card upgrade (no offense).

    Completely agree i think my EVGA GTX295 can handle it for now lmao was just asking about the performance difference most people say that it isnt even noticable and i have read a few more articles they also reach the conclusion the performance increase isnt even noticeable


    So i think the final decision is

    Bad Graphics Card = Aero OFF

    Good Graphics card = Aero ON



    Thanks for your replies and help
