You will learn how to optimize your stock system for maximum gaming performance, no matter what games you play, or what hardware you are running.
This guide will teach you how to configure your games, and improve your skills, so that you will:

See the enemy - before he sees you.
Hear the enemy - before he hears you.
Kill the enemy - before he kills you.

Critic Reviews

Pwning N00bs . . . centers around building a respectable gaming-PC that can maintain performance, without spending the defence-budget of a small country. I would gladly give a copy to an older relative as an introduction to upgrading his PC. The second half dedicates itself to the actual gaming. Tips on how to go about learning a new game . . . there are the nice tips regarding hardware and mentality when approaching the world of competitive online gaming . . . . For that alone, this book is worth the three quid it costs for the Kindle version.” (UK Gaming Daily)

Not a full game guid

Covers war-game and 'battlefield' online multiplayer games. Not games like Mass Effect, HALO, EVE Online, or any 'Sword and Sorcery' games like World of Warcraft or Guild Wars.

Not everything applies outside those games.

I actually prefer the hardware section...
