The major benefits are that you can run the server at a higher priority by running it as a service ( to give it an advantage in performance over other processes running on your machine and that you can keep the server at the login prompt. You can also restart the server automatically (in case of a power loss or scheduled restart) when the machine loads windows and all services. I can't speak in numbers for what the gain is in performance, but it makes the server very low maintenance, easy to control, and worry-free. Now if we only had in-game admin...
