Are you talking about the shader cache size option in the nvidia control panel? Yes, leave it on driver default, this is a new feature as of driver version 496.13 and it won't necessarily improve your FPS, it's meant to prevent stuttering. When playing a game certain actions/scenes require your system to compile shaders to display that specific event, these however can cause stutters in your game since they require shaders to be compiled to display those scenes properly. Shader cache is simply the method of saving these compiled shaders onto your drive so the next time they're called again (i.e loading the same map or using a heavily animated attack move again) they are called straight from the drive instead of having to be recompiled...

Shader cache is simply the method of saving these compiled shaders onto your drive so the next time they're called again (i.e loading the same map or using a heavily animated attack move again) they are called straight from the drive instead of having to be recompiled in real-time, makes it easier on your system to render the next scenes. This new cache size feature simply just allows you to control the amount you save.
