post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Id like to know if anyone here has benchmarked different os's for gaming cas I wasn't able to find a thread on the subject. I am thinking of benchmarking XP SP2 vs. XP Gaming Edition vs. XP x64 vs. Vista Ultimate x64. The tests will mainly be gaming ones to see which OS will run my games will the highest avg fps. Ill be using fraps for this part. Ill also be running some other bmarks...not sure what yet.
But anyways....if you guys know of a similar thread...Id like to know

I beg to differ. That may have been the case a couple months ago, but Vista is currently owning XP in gaming and benchmarking.

All vs. benchmarks have shown that XP is faster in gaming and benchmarking than Vista (even SP1). So all that changed already! I don't think so

Please do elucidate.

the best one is xp with nlite

you remove all crap from xp and services, you have in the end xp with 50mb of ram, the rest is free for gaming

vista is better for gaming if you have more than two GPUs but anything under that XP will work as long as you don't want 4GB of ram.
