    I always shoot for fullscreen, for some reason i thought i remembered someone telling me if you use fullscreen then your computer puts more focus on what your playing.
    But if you do borderless, it still dedicates some resorces for stuff you might have open or running on the desktop.
    I Would love to know if there is any truth to this.
     
    But yes fullscreen....

    Full screen. Always full.screen. The way it's meant to be played. The way which plays best.

    I always play full screen. My wife plays bordered/windowed, but she only plays MMO's.

    Card games are for playing in a window. You're not going to get satisfaction trying to re-litigate your problems with BF1 while playing in Borderless Window. As you're also rendering the desktop, performance will suffer.

    The only game I play in borderless windowed mode is Diablo 3 because for some reason the game STILL doesn't support ultra wide resolution displays in full screen. Other than that everything else I play is in full screen.

    Full screen, unless a game is having issues running in full-screen... Which there have been games that have had issues running in full-screen.
