Check out my guide here:

I use utorrent. It's great. Honestly though, the client isn't going to affect speeds much assuming it's correctly configured. It mostly depends on the torrent. If you're connected to hundreds of seeds that are uploading a lot, you'll get a good speed. If you're connected to hundreds of seeds and they're uploading a few tenths a of kB/s each, you're not going to get good speeds.

i use utorrent and i get 70KBps on a 768Kbps so its all good
just depends on the Peer to Seed ratio WAY too many leeches for many torrents

I like uTorrent. Azureus is really cool too though. I'm just too lazy to install java.

true. torrents are also better for bigger files imo. i can never find decent programs and games on p2p's, but they are better for mp3's and stuff and torrents are only good for albums.
