I know when I do this from games my video card ram dumps a lot. am running 64 bit OS but I am not sure what BF3 is.
Edit: you need to look up the legal definition of hearsay. It's not hearsay if that person said it and it's their experience.....and yes before you criticize me, I have graduated law school and am sitting for the bar in feb.
Okay hearsay is not the right word. How about not enough data?
For the possible memory drop on Alt + Tab, there is a "Used Physical Memory" graph you can monitor in process viewer to see any drop.
A 32-bit app will have *32 at the end of the process in Task Manager. A 64-bit app will not have *32.
Congratulations on graduating law school.
