What option uses more resources?

General Discussion
Normal 'Fullscreen' mode or 'Windowed: Fullscreen' mode? Why?
Windowed: Full screen uses more resources compared to regular Full screen. It's because your computer is actively rendering your desktop and so it has to use resources to keep it up when compared to regular Full screen where it doesn't have to actively render it.
Plus Windowed Full screen most likely eats a few frames compared to the other option.
