post #31 of 56
Hmm, if your eligible for both Vista x64 and XP x64, why not order both and see which one you like the most?

Well, i havent used xp x64 before so i dont really know. Vista x64 can be difficult, especially if you are lazy. x86=plug and play os...lol not really.

In what way is Vista 64-bit difficult? Was a painless and quick installation for me.

Still have to do the routine disabling a milliion services and that jazz, but that's nothing different from XP (either 32-bit or 64-bit).

Well, I've been using XP x64 on my personal computer ever since it came out, without any driver problems or anything. I think it's a great OS, you get the stability of Server2003 without having to mess with all the server baggage (or pay 3x more ).

It's just as easy to find XP x64 drivers as it is to find Vista drivers, so that really isn't a factor anymore.

Just to add it: I installed Xp x64 when I built a rig for my girlfriend, and she's been able to use it fine.

I have been running xp 64 for years, plenty of drivers available and a way faster os than xp32. I have had no issues or bugs with it what so ever. I highly recommend it.

I dunno what everyones problem is. Easily swayed to accept others opinions?

I used xp x64 for 6 months last year and I thought it was excellent.

I have Windows Vista Ultimate x64 and x32, Windows XP Pro and Windows XP64 Pro. Out of all of them, XP Pro (x86) is the easiest to use. It has the most driver support and help available. Windows XP64 has a few driver problems and other compatibility issues. I upgraded to Vista Ultimate x64 from XP64 as soon as Ultimate came out. Windows Vista Ultimate x64 flat beats XP64 into the dust. Vista Ultimate has problems, but they are all gradually being worked out. Windows Vista Ultimate x32 is okay, but it is just unnecessary. If you want to get a free OS, get Windows Vista Ultimate x64. Thats just my opinion, so do whatever you want. Different people think and feel differently.

XP x64 = Fail
Vista x64 = Just rick rolls xp x 64
post #39 of 56
After using Vista x64 for a while I am switching back to XP x64 simply becuase the games i play (non dx10 games, WoW is the major one) get better performance in XP x64 bit than Vista x64. Ive tried compatability modes etc, but In Vista i get some serious render lag that i do not in XP x64.

Also Vista for me is a pain to install. Which could be atrributed to my mobo / optical drive issue.

I have to disconnect all SATA optical drives, and install with a PATA drive. Once in Vista i need to immediately install the chipset drivers / reboot and install SP1. Any other combo will not work for me.
