I have a database which contains my members table and a few other things. The members table is heavily accessed..

I am going to make 2 more tables which will be heavily used

My question is, will it slow things down if I put the 2 new tables in the same database as the members database

Would it be better making a new database for the 2 new tables?

Or doesnt it matter?

I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code

I would strongly suggest you to keep it in the same database, or you will have to run mysql_select_db() a lot of times.

I've only encountered 2 or 3 real-world applications that actually required a second database, so the answer in your case is probably no.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.
