Is there a way to stop Gazebo and ROS form publishing topics I do not use currently. This would help with performance. Right now I turn off a lot of plugins in rqt/rivz that I am not actively using and I reduce publish frequencies where I can.

You should not load the nodes that publish to these topics. But with the standard topics of gazebo is this probably not possible.

I am running with a Intel i7 with a simple robot only two joints and a laser with navigation running. My system grinds at times. Is there a recommended system config for running ROS? and Gazebo. Oh ..yes I am also running Gazebo 1.9 the robot is in simulation.

My own system (core2duo) with gazebo 1.0 runs complex models, so your i7 should work. Check with top and in the logs what is going on. Navigation is probably cpu intensive.
