    Running WoW on high priority

    I was wondering if there is anyway to run WoW on high priority while running vent and not have that 5 second lag time with vent?

    Google is your friend, took whole 20 seconds to find this thread about vent priority settings.

    There is also another vent lag issue where vent sound can sometimes be several minutes late. It's caused by bad audio drivers in Vista/Win7. Fix for this issue is simply forcing vent to use DirectX only and bypass the soundcard drivers: check on "use direct sound" for both input and output device, and select DS from the dropdown lists.

    Trolling should be.

    There is 0 reason to change any process priority. Doing so is unintelligent.

    Because that means it uses more power. Power that might have been used for more important programs. IMO its not a bad idea to do, it might increase performance and it probably won't cause any harm to your pc.

    It doesn't use more power. Its just a priority shift.

    It puts more priority on wow running, than parts of the Operating System itself. Which can then cause the machine to crash. Crashing's not good.

    I wasn't talking about power as in electricity. I was talking about power from the CPU.

    This is why you shouldn't bump priority on a process. Windows has become good enough at managing itself. Going in and changing process priorities can sometimes give it fits when it needs CPU time and can't get it.
