Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: PCs are getting faster all the time-but your PC is not. Sure, you can upgrade it, but how do you know which changes will give you the most speed for the least money? Should you buy more RAM, a new graphics adapter, or a processor upgrade? Answering these questions and getting objective, reliable information about how all these options will affect your PC has been an almost impossible task. Until now.

Windows Performance Secrets strips away the mysteries of PC performance and gives you in-depth information on all the factors that control your PC's speed. Whether you're running Windows 98, Windows 95, or Windows NT 4.0, this book will guide you to better performance. Using Ziff-Davis' industry-standard Winstone and WinBench benchmarks, the authors have packed the book with hundreds of test results that tell you exactly how much performance gain different upgrades will really give you. And, you can learn how to wring the most possible performance from your PC without ever spending a dime! The book even includes two CD-ROMs with complete copies of the benchmarks, so you can do your own performance studies.

The authors are top industry experts on PC performance, the founders and leaders of the Ziff-Davis Benchmark Operation, the group that created these benchmarks. Their years of experience in PC performance show in the detailed, concrete advice available throughout the book, as well as in the clear explanations of vital technical concepts. If you want the most performance from your PC, don't miss this book.
