I should have mentioned this a while ago, but I was never actually going to finish this guide. I only posted this unfinished guide, because archiving stuff is important.

So anyway can someone explain in full detail what's wrong with this guide?

nice necro
ignoring the fact about anything that's potentially wrong and the wild claims of different DNS improving performance and your constant use of frame time instead of FPS, you essentially took whatever you wanted from mastercoms documentation[FINISHED] and rewrote it yourself[UNFINISHED].

are SSDs actually very helpful for games like tf2? I would think pretty much everything could be loaded into memory when actually playing... So, my gut feeling is that reading stuff from disk isn't that common?

iirc lots of tf2s files are preloaded during startup, so if you want a faster start up then an ssd is very useful

Not all of it tho. I just took the objective performance facts from mastercomfig. The Hardware buying tips section comes from me alone, culminated with some horror stories of shitty computers from crappy commercial stores (cough cough Best Buy).

The steam browser uses an old version of chromium, where DNS would be used, thus DNS technically improves performance, but it's the steam browser so it doesn't make a difference anyway. Also I consider general OS optimizations to be good, regardless if they help with TF2 performance.

Also what's wrong with me using frame time?

AimIsADickThe Hardware buying tips section comes from me alone

I wouldnt trust hardware tips from a dude who isnt willing to save enough money to buy something better than i5 laptop with integrated graphics because he thinks college is a scam and any job is a waste of time...

Well yeah not me obviously, but there are other people who are experts when getting PCs (like Setsul). That's where I get some hardware buying tips from. Also I really worded that above quote badly; I should have just said I got the hardware tips sections from other people to begin with.

No offense, but basicly everything youve recommended is straight from someone else. That would be fine, if you weren't trying to pass it off as your own ideas or even really knew what you were talking about...

Right can you explain to me with specific details and references what's wrong about my guide? I can't even see anything wrong with it (aside from the anime reference, that just made me cringe).

SSDs can help with dynamic model loading (cosmetics) and some sound loads.
