Im considering getting dooing a reformat, and reinstalling my win7 ultimate.

I was wondering, if i dont use the Power4gear program, and the intel boost stuff. Will my g74sx run slower, than with them ?

From a gamer point of view =)

Or to put it different, what do i -have to- install after win7 is installed, to get max performance out of my g74sx

Cheers =)
And merry xmas!

Power4Gear is just a set of power profiles....it doesn't make the system run faster. (You can set set all the same parameters in Windows Power Management.) And Turbo Boost is built into your CPU/chipset already....there's nothing you install to make it work. The Turbo Boost Monitor is just what it says....it's only a desktop gadget that offers a graphic display of processor speed. (Theoretically, a system should run faster without the desktop sidebar....including the monitor. But I doubt is it makes much difference.)

After you install WIn 7, there are about 10 drivcers you'll need to add. After that, everything else is optional software.
