depends on what you are rendering. particles and such dont do well in an indexed list. in fact, indexed lists are only faster if they significent reduce the amount of vertices that need to be processed (ie transformed, lit).

display lists are great for geometry that dont change, but depends in the card (do tests). vertex arrays are you general purpose speed up, but again care needs to be taken when doing dynamic updates to the array (ie particles).

the best way is to test each method for what your rendering and do some research on google.com
