"a good setting" depends on what graphics hardware you''re running and the modes that it supports.

Aside from that: Try displaying some text on the screen showing what device mode you''re using. Maybe you''re not using hardware vertex processing, but software?

Hmm, full-screen is usually faster than windowed. Of course if you''re comparing 1600x1200 full-screen to a 640x480 window, that''s another story.

When profiling, make sure you use D3DPRESENT_INTERVAL_IMMEDIATE so that it''s not syncing to the monitor refresh rate. And don''t use D3DSWAPEFFECT_COPY unless you need to pass source and destination rectangles to Present. D3DSWAPEFFECT_DISCARD is preferable, as long as you don''t need the back buffer to persist after calling Present.
