I would say the fastest is the one that uses the fastest connection.

As for best, every user appreciates some feature more than others. So the best is the that has exactly the features you want.

Pointless thread...

its not the software (client?) its self it is how many other people have got it running and the connection to the internet and how many people are running it (peers)
so the best one is the mostly widely used and safest

Files are shared cross clients, the client has nothing to do with it. It's the Tracker info in the BT file that the client use. Clients like Bitcomet also has DHT Network (trackerless torrent) which can be used as backup in case of the Tracker going down.

So yes the best is the one you like the best (with a few minor details).

I´m using the new Bittorrent, it´s a lot better than the old versions. If you tried it before and uninstalled it, try the latest version, it might suprise you as much as it did to me

uTorrent hands down. i've used Azureus.... too resource happy for me, and requires Java to run. i've used ABC Bittorrent.... just didn't like it. i've used..... quite a few torrent apps.... uTorrent is just awesome to me. plus it's small (used to be under 100k, a hair bigger than that now though. still under 200k)

utorrent without a doubt. Azureas is too system resource intensive and buggy. Bitcomet, I not really please with its ability to maximize my connection. By the way can someone give a bit of advice? I'm moving a torrent download to another drive, i want to know :can i resume the download ?

errrr... i actually tried it once. if u transfer everything u've downloaded so far onto another drive, and then start the torrent all over again and tell it to save in that same destination where u've just transferred the files to, u should b able to resume.

You guys have convinced me. I tried uTorrent and I liked it a lot, so I uninstalled Bittorrent . Where BT was using 40Mb RAM, uTorrent uses only 10Mb and it´s downloading a lot faster!

They don´t, but the nForce chipset drivers (which include the integrated network controller) include the Nvidia firewall, a program that is pure crap. Leave the firewall for the specialists , remove it and install a different one like Comodo or Sygate.

^^^ what he said. uninstall the NVidia firewall (which i believe during the setup process is called the NVidia Network Access Manager or somethin like that....)

only thing i hate about not being able to use the NVidia network access manager.... is that i don't get to use any of the neat little features of the NForce 570/590 chipset.... like FirstPacket and stuff like that.....

i think it depends. certain torrent apps seem to have a different way of handling torrent downloads.

I used Azureus for a while until I found uTorrent. Azureus would often end up eating up several hundred MB of system memory and one of my cores. I nixed it and switched to uTorrent and have seen it max out at 40MB when it was busy recompiling the data of a multi-GB torrent and running a few others at the same time. I figure I'm pleased with it so why switch unless another torrent program can run on even less resources, which I highly doubt.

bitcomet is wat i use

but software wise by the amount of ram used and amount of cpu usage utorrent is the most effecient as far as i know

also when it works the damn thing works great i dont normally use it though i always keep it updated (i use utorrent for large downloads)

this is due to the fact utorrent doesnt always run about the same for me due to my connection or somethin but bitcomet works fine so i use that normally

but when utorrent does work it works a lot better then bitcomet sometimes my torrents r slow on utorrent

i know my friend download a very large game in a few hrs usin it but the download was only a few miles away from where he lived where as the same download took me about 2 days usin bitcomet as it was more then a country away (from canada to the UK) large downloads could take 2 days or 5 days sometimes longer so if utorrent does work for whatever reason it doesnt always work for me (no idea why) it'll download a lot faster so its always worth usin for anything over a few gbs
