Ok, I'm running a Windows Vista Ultimate x64 machine on 4GB Dual-Channel DDR2 on an Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 with a PNY Nvidia GeForce 9600 GT. I'm running 180.48 drivers and I need to know the best settings I could set for the following things based on my config:
1. The Nvidia Control Panel's Advanced Settings Section
2. The in-game settings for Tomb Raider Anniversary
3. The in-game settings for Supreme Commander
4. The in-game settings for Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance
5. The in-game settings for World In Conflict
Some helping info: My current monitor's highest resolution possible is 1280 x 1024. I'd like all the games to run decently at that resolution. If any of the games can run better at a lower resolution and higher settings, let me know those as well.
This is really based on your own opinion, ie do you want performance (fps) or eyecandy?
Of course you want a mix of both so my suggestion is to get fraps and put all settings on high, then reduce until reach 30fps.
If the game isnt smooth enough keep lowering settings until 40fps.
The main settings affecting fps are usually relating to Draw Distance, Ground Clutter and Shadows / Lighting.
If you are playing SC i would suggest looking at overclocking your Q6600 if you havent already, most systems find that game bottlenecks on the CPU.
