So glad I don't have to do any of this. All I had to do was build a mediocre computer 4 years ago.

This topic is bollocks, as windows 7 has a way of prioritizing your fullscreen aplications to almost 100%, all your windows functions are suspended as soon as you enter the game in fullscreen. YOU MAY get 1-2 fps more without basic functions like indexing BUT that will cause severe system problems.

raging imp is a Rakata! See my sig for reference :>
Are you suggesting the Windows Direct X API manages your systems resources/drivers/applications in fullscreen modes ?! ......... 0.o

If so how then am I able to run a server and client in fullscreen mode without windows disabling (suspending) the processes needed for the server ?

It's always fun when people come along that don't know anything about increasing system performance

It's even more fun when others come in and explain in detail why theyre wrong

Also if you have a system with less than 4 gigs of system memory use ReadyBoost (Win7 only Vista's ReadyBoost is pointless).

One good USB drive for this is OCZ Rally2 Dual Channel 16 GB, part number OCZUSBR2DC-16GB. The Dual channel is the key and allows 33 mb/s read and 15 mb/s write. Do watch the prices of some sites. This item only cost $30 tops and 32 GB is about $70. Seen a few scams on Amazon selling them for the price of a SSD.

It's more of a HDD cache them RAM.

ReadyBoost works wonders for texture quality on my machine. With 4gb of solid state cache, everything is crisp and detailed as soon as it's in view. Previously I was getting texture 'pop-in' and in some situations the high-quality versions of textures weren't being loaded in at all.
