Do decals affect performance? How?

Hello there,

A couple of people I work with are experiencing major computer lag (and even crashing) working with SW09 (SP3.0) and using many decal'd parts (roughly 50-100 decals, with 750 parts, with 1000 bodies). I was wondering:

1. Do decals affect performance?
2. If so, are there settings we could toggle with to make the parts easier to work with? Of course, lightweight mode will not work since we require the decals to show in drawnigs.
3. Off topic, but is there a way to clear the recent document list under >FILE?

The computers range in the dept. so below I've listed some of the common specs...

Core2Duo
QuadroFX 3500
SW09 Sp3.0
2Gb RAM
> Ran lightweight registry fix posted on the forum
> Quality settings set to 50% or lower

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!
