    I have a mid 2012 MBP 2.6 GHz Intel i7, 8. GB ram, nVidia GT 650M and I'm running Windows Pro 8.1 64. I'm not a hardcore gamer, but I'm looking to get the best performance I can out of my games. I mostly play HoTS and Overwatch, but I'd like to try Fallout 4.

    What are some things I can do to maximize my performance? Should I upgrade to Windows 10? I hear that improves frame rates. Anything I can fiddle with that doesn't involve new hardware?

    Windows 10 is a good upgrade, I couldn't stand windows 8.1. As for maximizing performance, there isn't a whole lot you can do.

    Someone mentioned over locking the video card. Does that sound viable?

    Getting the most recent drivers.

    A laptop's components are all soldered on, there's nothing you can upgrade that would affect gaming performance.
