I would try use either "Radeon Tweaker" or "Tweaker" to optimize your settings on your Radeon. These programs make the necessary registry changes to help you get the most out of your card. They are sometimes good for a few hundred points. It depends on how bad your settings are now. Also you are going to want to overclock your board some. I believe the "Tweaker" program will do that otherwise try "Powerstrip 3".
