I am familiar with the nice and renice commands on the shell, but is there any graphical method (from the User Interface) to actually launch/run an application at a different priority level so to make it use more CPU than it would normally be allocated to it?
Does the Completely Fair Scheduler introduced with kernel 2.6.23 makes this a moot point now?

Install htop. It is improved top, ncurses application. Then nice/renice with F7 & F8. Another option is qps. It is Qt app. Open qps find process in question, right click on process -> Renice...

If you are using Ubuntu: System -> Administration -> System Monitor, go to 'Processes' tab, righ-click on process and click 'Change Priority...'
'System Monitor' can also be started with: Alt+F2, and type in: gnome-system-monitor
