Default 3DMark Tweak Guide

Install 2000
Go to Windows update..install Service Pack 2
Install DX 8.1 for 2000
Install VIA 4.37 4 in 1's if you are using a VIA chipset board
Install Detonator 29.40's

Set your swapfile to 2.5 times your ram
From the Run box...type in sysedit
Go to System.ini...under the 386 section type a new line as follows :
ConservativeSwapfileUsage=1
Defrag...and defrag often. I generally defrag before I shut my system down so I'm fresh on the next startup.

Set your monitor for a 60Hz refresh rate for all games
In 98 I got better scores with refresh at 120Hz for Dragon and Nature...all others 60Hz..but in 2000 60Hz does the trick all the way thru.

Get the latest version of RivaTuner RC10.2 and use that for overclocking and doing the driver tweaks etc. Make sure you disable V-Sync.

Credits go out to OPP/Mr Icee on Icrontic

Tiny question: since WinXP is based on NT tech, (like 2K) is it possible for me to apply that tweak OPP mentionned on my winXP os ?

Nowadays, my unused disksize is rather large due the fact I recently bought myself a nice Maxtor D740X 60GB (I came from Maxtor DM40 20.4GB) and now I don't have anymore complaints about lowdiskspace, so I'm interrested ! :-)

don't think it'll help that much.. hd speed isn't important when 3dmarking, especially when you know that it's running in your ram

I don't understand...why does we get more frames when setting the monitor @ 60 Hz 4 the games?

set your swapfile to 2.5 times your amount of ram

ok, but atm it's (standard settings) between 768 and 1536mb
is that any good?

that's about 3x my amount of ram :s
but do the 2 values have to be equal? (min equals max ? )


tnx for the tweaks !
