This is good advice for boosting performance on a low spec machine but you have to be careful about what you disable as it can create problems that are very hard for an normal end user to troubleshoot. Perhaps use a guide like this:

Intel core I7 920
6GB OCZ platinum 1600
XFX HD4890
Noctua nh-u12p
Corsair HX520
Antec 300
Samsung 1TB F1 Spinpoint
Samsung SM2443BW 24"
