Without the media timer goin, a guy could probably have 10 or more instances of srcds.exe running. But with the media timer, maybe 2.
no, it just makes the cpu load more accurate.
a server using 50% of a CPU core at 500FPS is still using around 50% at 64 fps, even though the task manager says it's using less than 10%
any host that thinks multimedia timers dramatically effect the number of slots they can put a server need to get educated
