    Ive had my Radeon 9700 for a few weeks now and Im very pelased with it but Im still convinced I can get more out of this card just by changing a few options in the display properties but dont know what Im changing :P so if anyone could point me in the right direction it would be great :)

    You got it Wiggo ;)

    It really depends on what you want, performance or quality?

    Well then, for middle of the road you will want to set those slider bars to the middle. Force 16-bit Z-Buffer, and support ktx buffer region extension. And for Direct X do the same with the slider and enable both options. Then for the extremes, slide the bars all the way to the left for Performance and disable all the options. For Quality slide all the bars to the right and enable all the options, and force 24-bit. ;) Have fun :thumb:
