    Things I have changed in the build.prop file. I have had no adverse effects, but I don't guarantee you won't.

    windowsmgr.max_events_per_sec = 105 (from 70)
    dalvik.vm.heapsize = 50m (from 30m)
    mot.proximity.delay = 150 (from 450)
    wifi.supplicant_scan_interval = 300 (from 45)
    ro.telephony.call_ring.delay = 1000 (from 3000)

    windowsmgn.max - changes the maximum events the processor can handle in a second, mostly for smoother scrolling.
    dalvik - changes the dalvik memory size, so there are more things loaded into memory (dalvik is a way faster memory 'program') It was a huge deal when dalvik was introduced in froyo.
    proximity delay - changes how fast the screen turns on while in a call and you move the phone away from your head.
    wifi - changes the time android scans for wifi networks from every 45 seconds to 5 minutes, saving on battery.
    ring delay - changes how long it takes the phone to ring when someone calls you. I've had a couple people tell me that the phone hadn't even rang on there end.

    Sorry for the layman's explanation. I know there are much more detailed explanations elsewhere, and to be honest my knowledge is more limited than other people on here.

    edit: I used to use jrummys overclock app to adjust these on the DX, but it doesn't work on DX2, so I had to do it manually with root explorer.

    I use Root Explorer (free) from the Market.
    Open it,
    scroll down to and select 'system',
    press the button at the top 'Mount R/W',
    press+hold 'build.prop' for popup menu,
    scroll down to 'Open in Text Editor'
    find each line that I named in the OP and change the values at the end
    press menu button and select 'Save Changes'

    Be very careful that you don't change anything else. Just the values at the end of what I listed.

    Another thread that helped a ton with memory usage (not the dalvik memory) is http://www.droidforums.net/forum/droid-x2-hacks/154481-memory-performance-tweaks.html . I did this first, but I can definitely tell the difference with build.prop edits.

    Interesting... I don't know why mine had the option of open in text editor and others don't? But at least you got around it. I don't know of any other edits that help.
