i posted this originally in the gamesworld discussion section, under Is My....., ..... thread.
hope that helps guys out there that have crappy comps like mine, i got the rundll tweak from tweakxp.com, hats off to them. my specs:control panel>appearance and themes>display>settings tab>advanced button>click on ur vid card tab (top right, usually)>direct 3d settings, click on the drop down menu that says mip map detail to the right of it and select high performance. the graphics in the games that i have haven't gone down a bit, and i get 7-10 fps more!!!! , this is by far the best tweak i've ever used for games!!!! oh, and another crazy ass trick clears up resources and cleans up ur cpu power, so u can play graphic intensive games: click start>run>"Rundll32.exe advapi32.dll,ProcessIdleTasks" , hit okay and don't do anything for 10-20 minutes, it'll look like it's doing nothing (the computer), but infact it is, so read a book or something until 20 minutes is up. now start up that graphic intensive game, and wholla! before applying the above mentioned tweaks to my comp, i was running the already "enhanced" doom 3 alpha at 10 fps average, after the tweaks, 20 freaking fps!!!!! , there is a god!
