Well, either you don't have MR optimized correctly, or something is horribly wrong with your installation. Search this forum for another thread on slow MR renders (edit, can't find it. Are your render times like exponentially slower, or just a bit?).

As for FG, with MR there is no such thing as a make better button. Few options that you turn on/ off for FG, GI, etc. are going to make a dramatic difference. It is more a matter of having your settings set correctly and optimized.
