What I've done so far with a very noticeable difference is set frameskip to 2 (will probably increase this a bit) Turn on auto frameskip (will limit frame skipping to whatever you set for the previous value) then tick Prevent FPS from exceeding 60.

After that you want to change rendering resolution to 2x1, this will make everything look better on bigger screens.

Then you want to goto the audio menu and set Audio Latency to high.
