My loading times from XP Pro SP2 x32 to Ultimate x64 were cut literally in half with the same system. Vista runs so much smoother for me than XP. I did do alot of tweaking though.
A lot of programs do have 64 bit enhancements.

I have never been able to run any Half Life2 games in Vista until now.

There is 1 issue I can't figure out. Sometimes when I start a game, instead of it being full screen the game starts in a window in the top left corner at about 2/3 of a full screen. I found when that happens I have to restart the computer because if I just restart the game the same thing happens. If I restart that always fixes it. Doesn't matter what game and I can't fix it in the game (i.e. playing in a window instead of full screen)
Has anyone seen this before?
Yea I believe it's driver/software based too.
All games I have tried work fine apart from the fact that some (HL-2, Portal) need to be ran as administrator or need XP compatibility enabled.
Had that screen issue with only one game so far after altering the resolution but was resolved by restarting the game.
