I've just bought a new video card, just a cheap on but it's 100 times better than my old GForce2. I've been playing around with different setting to see which one suits the machine best.

I've tried both OpenGL and DirectX options and can't really see any difference, what is the difference between these settings? And which one should I be using?

I've got a GForce5 card, if it changes the answer.

Well on my Evo N610c laptop DirectX seems to be smoother (GFX 32Mb ATI Mobility).

PC I use OpenGL although was gonna try DirectX to see if it makes any difference - mind you if it works don't try and fix it springs to mind (for me that is).
