    Your problem is in bold text. Your system resources aren't limitless. If you want better performance for other apps, quit resource hogs like games.

    Windows, using DirectX, can delegate most graphics tasks to the GPU, leaving the CPU free for other stuff.

    OS X, using Open GL, can't. Not that it won't be possible somewhere down the line, but at the moment the graphics cards just don't have Open GL hardware aceleration.

    This is 2001 tech man. These companies need to get it together. We all suffer.
