    so ram and graphics do count after all for the viewport if you using higher preview size

    They do IF yours is getting filled. If they're not getting filled, then no.

    I'm not sure if there's a noticeable performance improvement when connecting objects. I personally would approach a similar project by using Xrefs for the actual "unique" objects, so I can easily edit them without having to solo things and waste time and then use Instances if you're having multiple copies of it.

    Technically, it should.

    I'm not sure you understand exactly how Xrefs works.

    XRefs are references to external Project files and make it easier for Projects to be edited by several people.

    If you won't be doing any animations to these building, Keep the Xref as a generator. That should make loading the file faster.

    Generator
    
    XRef objects can now be defined as Generators. No individual objects will then not be imported into the master Project and the XRef object will quasi instance the reference Project (as was done with older XRef projects). This lets you keep the master Project’s file size to a minimum. The disadvantage: Individual objects can no longer be modified, linked to Expressions or animated within the master Project. The XRef object itself can, however, still be animated or deformed.

    yes i maybe don't understand exactly.....i was referring to use Xrefs on objects on which these textures are applied,can't i do that? 

    and if it's possible wouldn't be that better?

    Since the floor is a single plane. Xrefs would be quite useless there.
