Fastest performance:

General:-
* AGP Command FIFO = 2x
* Refresh Optimisation = Enabled

D3D:-
* 3D Filter Quality = Normal
* Alpha Blending = Smoother
* Anti-Aliasing = Fastest Performance (no duh!)
* Guardband Clipping = Enabled
* Level of Detail Bias = 2 or 8 (depends on what driver set u have)
* Maximum Buffered Frames = 1 (more buffered frames can increase performance but can cause system latency)
* Mip Map Dithering = Disabled
* Vertical Sync = Disabled (if suffering from erratic frame rates enable this for some FPS stability)
* Z-Buffer Optimisation = Enabled

OGL/GLide:-
* 3D Filter Quality = Normal
* Alpha Blending = Smoother
* Anti-Aliasing = Fastest Performance (no duh!)
* Depth Precision = Faster (if this causes visual defects set back to "fast".) 
* Force 16bit Textures = Enable
* Guardband Clipping = Enabled (Use EITHER Gaurdband clipping OR HSR, not both)
* Hidden Surface Removal (HSR) = Aggressive Tiling (may cause visual defects)
* Legacy Texture Compression = Enable
* Level Of Detail Bias = 2 or 8 (depends on what driver set u have)
* Maximum Buffered Frames = 1 (more buffered frames can increase performance but can cause system latency)
* Mip Map Dithering = Disabled
* Rendering Color Depth = Software Controlled
* Triple Buffering = Enabled
* Vertical Sync = Disabled (if suffering from erratic frame rates enable this for some FPS stability)

How To Update Drivers Manually

After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.

  • Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).

  • If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
