Like I said, I've been back and forth, left and right. Seen em both, many variations of each, all variations of XP (including TinyXP etc.)

I love the Vista UI. Makes me smile. (not really but still..)

I just love love love the XP speed. And for gaming, it seems to love me back!

I suggest, actually, to get both and have it set as dual-boot. XP is much more responsive and Vista can be pretty sluggish even with a setup like mine and the rest of yours.

Eh. Why dual boot XP and Vista? I only need one, and I would end up going crazy having to reboot to play games etc.

I went through that once with linux, and almost died. lol

But I prefer Dual-Boot -> 1+1=2
If you want x64: 2+2=4
