I'm guessing that you should have gone with a 8000 series card rather than the 460. A 8800gtx would have been perfect. Please correct me if im wrong

I'm sorry, but Vista was not THAT bad. ME was my first OS on a pre-built PC and it was the most horrible experience ever. I remember that thing would blue screen daily. The only problems I had with Vista were WLAN issues and it becoming slow over time.

As for the debate at hand, OP, XP came out in 2001. If they released Windows 8 tomorrow, that makes no difference to Windows 7 and Vista. How can you even use that analogy? We are talking about 10 years since release vs 2 years & 5 years. What a ridiculous argument.

Fact of the matter is, XP is ancient now. Really, that's what it is. By your logic, they actually should be supporting OS like ME, and windows 95.

XP is now only used by business (which is actually in part because Vista was received very badly, and businesses are now reluctant to invest in a new OS again), very old PCs and people like you who can't let go. There is absolutely no reason not to upgrade to win7 now unless you really do have games that won't work at all in it.

I used win7 on my dual core with 2GB RAM because a game wouldn't work right in XP with AA on but would in win7. Win7 ran just fine on that PC and games worked fine too. So old hardware is a moot point unless you have a equally ancient single core PC.

In which case... why are you on overclock.net?
WTH. I never said "lets support ancient operating systems", the whole point of my thread is "if it doesn't work properly on a certain OS, DON'T PUT IT ON THE BOX". Read the damn thread before you post.

And this isn't elitebastards.com, this is overclock.net, making crap stuff go faster. This PC without 2 extra hard drives cost me less than my boss' office system to make, and his can't even run Runescape on low.

I'm sure it works fine on the OS. Perhaps you lack a few features, but thats to be expected.

Maybe you should contact the company that makes the game and request they patch it up a few decades?

Like I said before

1. They got uncomfortably high temperatures.
2. They cost more here than a GTX 480.
3. I don't buy used GPUs, or any other used electronics for that matter.

Noticed how he is ignoring those people attempting to explain to him his mistake yet argues with others?

More proof?

Your CPU is holding that GPU back HARDCORE. This was with a GT240, with HIGHER settings set than you have set.

Your GPU should be getting you 120-150 FPS easy in L4D2.

You want to give me a game that has a real in game benchmark for more? I was also folding on my i5 while this was going on mind you......
