I have this game I'm trying to get to play smoother called Starcraft 2. My computer is old, its a Dell Dimensions 4700. I can play it but... its rough at times in that it chokes up then goes on, like the sound will stutter and you can't move anything for a brief second or two. However, I've done some other tweaking and really reduced it.

 

Recently, I found this program called Razer Game Booster. It has a tool that optimizes your computer for gaming but I'm not really trusting it that much to do something like that when I reviewed the things it listed that could be changed. I noticed that it said I could increase my virtual memory though by a lot. I currently have 4 GB of ram. My computer only says 3 GB but I have 4 GB installed.

 

My Virtual Memory settings are:

Initial size (MB) = 2046
Initial size (MB) = 4092

 

The recommended values given by the Razer Game Booster are:

Initial size (MB) = 4615
Initial size (MB) = 6150

 

I was reading this article about it too:

I don't want any headaches by doing something to my computer I never did before so my question is are these values safe to change to the recommended listed?
