Want the speed of XP back in some older Games?

You can install Graphics Drivers from Windows XP in Windows 7 (manually).

Disadvantages
- No Aero
- No WDDM
- No Usermode drivers (which are slower anyway)

Advantages
- Kernel mode drivers (speed)
- Speed

This may or may not help though depending on the card. For most Intel cards, this will for sure help out.
