Im sure you couldn't even measure a performance difference, let alone notice one:

From linux/drivers/net/forcedeth.c:
MODULE_PARM_DESC(optimization_mode, "In throughput mode (0), every tx & rx packet will generate an interrupt. In CPU mode (1), interrupts are controlled by a timer. In dynamic mode (2), the mode toggles between throughput and CPU mode based on network load.");

As for FirstPacket, there's no linux support that I know of, but it is only a QoS implementation, so as long as you're not downloading a bunch of stuff while you're gaming it's not going to help you. (And I'm sure the default QoS would work just as well in that case.)
