I have the other preferences set to favour accuracy over performance (e.g. 'Index unused headers', 'Index source files not included in build', 'Update index immediately after every file-save'), but for 'Index source and header files opened in editor' I've found it impacts the performance a lot without giving any additional noticeable increases in accuracy.
