    Not exactly a necessity for gaming, but Defraggler is a great complement to CCleaner. It can also speed up your load times and whatnot if it's been an extremely long time since you've defragged. It's the best free defragging program IMO, better than the windows one for sure.

    Spybot Search and Destroy is a great passive protection

    Auslogics helps performance by not only defragging but optimizing too

    Malwarebytes....need i say more?

    Linx for your cpu overclock testing needs

    Rivatuner is also another great tool!

    Can't forget Afterburner ,
    And btw, don't mean to point out the little things, but you misspelled software.

    The folding files are the old ones. Most are using these three.

    Win SMP for CPU - http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegroup/folding/release/FAH6.30-win32-SMP.zip

    GPU3 for 400 series cards (works with all others too) - http://www.stanford.edu/~friedrim/.Folding@home-systray-632.msi

    GPU2 for all other cards (does not work with 400s) - http://www.stanford.edu/group/pandegroup/folding/release/Folding@home-Win32-GPU-systray-623.msi

    Is Defraggler specific just to games, and will it "defrag" more than the Windows Defragment..er?
    Just noticed this list, and its even stickied. Great list. Thanks.

    ^ No defraggler defrags your whole system and it is actually better then windows fragmentation, and np, enjoy.
