Performance Tip: Eye Candy Causes Speed Decay

The standard Windows XP look has colors and animation galore.With a less-gaudy look, you can squeeze more performance out ofyour PC.
To change the look, right-click the My Computer icon and select Properties.
Then click the Advanced tab.
Under Performance, click the Settings button.
On the Visual Effects tab, click the”Adjust for best performance” option.
Or, click Custom and check just the features you want to keep.
On LCD displays, the “Smooth edges of screen fonts” option improves clarity but may also cause a large performance loss depending on your video board
