Most people use most of those settings. If your system can handle the game, then upgrade.

Desktop: Intel Core i5-3570K @ 3.8ghz || G. Skill Ripjaws 8GB DDR3 2133 || ASUS P8Z77-V LK || 128GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD || 640gb WD SATA HDD || Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO || Corsair TX650M || ASUS 24X SATA DVD Burner || Fractal Designs Arc Midi || Windows 7 64-bit

With such dramatic fall in prices I don't see any reasons why not having 4GB of RAM and a Core2Duo (or equivalent) that can handle all default services loaded at start-up to run during games, etc. With the machine in my signature using Vista Business x64, I have NO services disabled or any other tweaks applied and it flies through games, including Crysis Warhead.

Please read the rules, folks!

I still disable useless services. It really does help with performance and system responsiveness. Less to start up with, less to hog bandwidth on ram, disk, or to run in the background doing who knows what. Like indexing, and performance monitoring/logging.

If you like to waste money on junk, then buy a CREATIVE® product.
