Do you use Game Booster, even if your system is powerful?

Just curious about other people's experiences with it. I used to use it all the time on older/weaker computers. I still do use it whenever I end up using one of those computers.

However, I now have a pretty good rig. I still find myself using it whenever I remember it's there or when I'm trying to run a benchmark. I don't know how much it helps, or if it even helps at all anymore, but I still use it. How about you?

Here are some links if you don't know about it:

no, nor would I ever even consider it for 1 millisecond.

I had it installed but ended up unistalling it since i never use it.

Then i downloaded The Witcher 2, since it ran slower than expected i installed it again and the framerate got better.

From my experience, the program still has games getting a lower FPS on older computers.

All it should be doing is suspending some Windows operations so more resources can be used for the game, but while I know newer computers don't benefit from this, it doesn't do one single good thing on older computers as far as I've seen for myself.

It's not even malware, Razer is a real company that makes accesories, computer and stuff for PC gaming (Some stuff is overpriced though, like that laptop with touch panels).

Well it helped me run The Witcher 2 with better framerates (But my computer isn't even old, i bought it this year and it can run Outlast, Bioshock infinite, and Skyrim on high without problems, it's like an Xbox 360 in the form of a PC).
