comment How to compare two SQL Server 2008 configurations
I know, that's why just a comment as additional info to your answer. Usually you got 80% default settings. So this way you're left to compare only the remaining 20%. (+1 btw)

comment Is Index causing timeouts?
As soon as the first column in your index is not used in your query, the index cannot be efficiently used. Also, maybe you deleted some indexes that were crucial for some queries that now time out. I once had better performance using single indexes for each query column instead of a large combined one (stackoverflow.com/q/702469/44522).
