MVC can work with .cshtml or .aspx pages (you can mix Web Forms and Razor views in the One ASP.Net that Scott Hanselman talks about). This means MVC will search for a view with endings of .aspx, .ascx, .cshtml, .vbcshtml, in the Controller directory (if you have a HomeController, then it it would look in Views/Home, then Views/Shared). If you aren’t using aspx pages it’s doing extra work it doesn’t need to do. See Dave Ward’s post on the importance of using debug=false and Marcin Doboz’s post on MVC Performance for more details.

In your Global.asax.cs Application_Start() you can override this behavior.

protected void Application_Start()
    // code
    // since we aren't using web forms .aspx, remove from the view engines
    ViewEngines.Engines.Add(new RazorViewEngine());

    // more code...

Setting debug=false (always in Production!) in the web.config and changing the ViewEngines will get MVC running even better.
