    I was thinking today, and I was wondering: If I reduced my desktop resolution to 640x480 and dropped the colors to thousands before I launched a game, would it increase performance any?

    Games generally make resolution changes automatically upon startup if needed.

    In the game, performance improves as resolution decreases. However, that's a setting that's usually made in the game. Adjusting the system resolution is not going to help.

    Alrighty, thanks. Only reason I ask is because I picked up Macaddict's Mac Handbook today, and it mentioned something like that within....
