my vid card is in my signature

i was wondering whats better, windowed or fullscreen

my monitor is also in my signature

my desktop setting is 1024x768x32

im running the pete OpenGL,

what do u guys suggest, i would prefer full screen, but i dont want it if its gonna ruin the gameplay and frame rate.

im running windowed right now (so i can stil be on irc and icq :D)

I run full screen at 800x600 all the time and have no slowdowns at all. I have a ViewSonic 17GS monitor, a GEForce 2 GTS video card, and an Athlon T-Bird 1.2ghz processor.
sincerely,

All things equal, fullscreen mode is faster than windowed mode. My system spec is much lower than yours, and I could run everything at 800x600x32 with no slowdowns at all. Most of the time 1024x768x32 works fine as well. Make sure you have an updated driver for your video card, not the standard one that comes with WinXP.
