Some may have different results depending on your system memory etc.

oh wow this just improved things 10x.

Im now running Doom 3, on ultra high settings in 1600x1200, getting 50fps. when i tried this before doing this tweak i was lucky to even load the menu it was that slow.

wow this is quite a tweak.

Ok ive got an amd fx-53 cpu, 3.4ghz i think it works out as. 1gb of ddr ram geforce fx 5950

It made my game smoother and alot less choppy on the higher settings and i was able to up the resolution.

Ive been playing all afternoon on 1280x1024 and its never dipped below 30fps, averaging off at around 60fps, maxing at around 85fps.

Ive experienced no problems that it may cause or what people have assumed it may cause, the only thing that seems a little slower is windoes but i think that because ive been playing all afternoon and it needs a restart :D:D

Doom 3 rocks so does this tweak.
