Quick question here guys, and I know i'm asking the right crowd.

For your everyday, DirectX using, 3d games you buy today,games from around 2001 to now, you sometimes see in the options, to run the game fullscreen or windowed.

However I never figured it out, which would make a game run BETTER? Which gives better fps, which makes the cpu drag less, and which requires less ram? Or does it make any diffrence?

Say I have a game running 800x600. Which will make the game run smoother, fullscreen or windowed? I assume fullscreen, but I've never actually been TOLD one way or another, which is better?
