The tweak:
This is the easiest tweak ever, yet its result is astounding.

Simply right click Borderlands in the library, open properties, press Set Launch Options, and type
"-dx9" without the quotes. Launch the game, and you will notice a significant performance boost.

The steam version of borderlands is automatically set to Directx 10 mode, however, 9 is still compatable.

Enjoy!

I think this might have helped! Had the game running at around 40 fps before trying it, with a GPU utilization of below 50%. Now I get a somewhat steady 62 fps. Thanks!

@Derohk search in lowspecgamer borderlands. Lowspecgamer makes videos on boosting fps by going into the files and changing around a few things. I did what was in the video and my fps increased considerbably more than doing this

Borderlands 1 actually does use DirectX 9 by default. The hud from my recording program actually reports DX9, too!

Borderlands 2 uses -d3d9. It'll give you an error if you try to use this one, but it displays the proper syntax when it does produce the error.

Does this also work for Borderlands 2?
