Tips and Advice for my Semi-Weak Hardware?
#1
First and foremost, I know there is a sticky at the top talking about what hardware you need, but as not all computers are equal, some settings being flipped around can make a huge difference.
So, I am here to ask if anybody knows what I should set up my emulator to for better performance on my hardware?

Specs :
Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.29Ghz
4GB of DDR3 RAM @ 1066MHz
Nvidia GeForce 9400M 256MB of dedicated memory, 1.5GB of "shared" memory with RAM
320GB Hitatchi HDD 5400RPM (yes 5400, not 5200)

I mainly play the TimeSplitters games, and they have severe issues with lighting (Seeing lights through walls, flashing guns slow down game really bad, some graphical glitching as well with certain weapons). And I also TRY to play Spy vs. Spy, but the game runs so badly, that I don't even attempt to play it anymore.

Any tips and advice for my hardware? Or is this as much I'm going to get out of this aging beast?

That's probably about as good as you're going to get

I'll look into it, thanks. Wish I could get more out of this computer though. It's my main rig and I don't have enough money for anything better.

I think your CPU can be overlooked nicely. Depending on your cooler one could probably go close to 3ghz. That would really help.

I managed to get my old C2D E4600 2.4 GHZ around 2.8-3.2 GHZ so you should be getting close to that I guess.
We're supposed to be working as a team, if we aren't helping and suggesting things to each other, we aren't working as a team.

It's probably a laptop. So no overclocking.

Yes, I am using a laptop, however, I modified some settings on my own, and hit a sweet spot, so now games run buttery smooth.
(Haven't tested Spy vs Spy yet though, but I will soon)

Here are my new settings :
