I have a powerbook G4 running Leopard and i was wondering if is there any way to make games fun faster, i know they can because in Tiger they had better frame rates and the fan wouldn't spin at full speed, but i lost the disks for Tiger.

If you have an ATi graphics card then you can overclock (http://thomas.perrier.name/) it.

This works, I can get another 17% FPS or so by overclocking my Radeon 9600. A lot of games will be limited by the G4 processor though, even on my dual 1.8GHz G5 a lot of newer games are CPU-bound (like UT2004, Doom 3, Quake 4...)
