Here's how my system idles with Steam, Peer Guardian 2, Avast! Antivirus, CrystalCPUID, and the NVMixer tray running.

Oh yeah, this is Windows XP x64 Professional Edition.

I've got 1047920 Kb RAM total, and 585524 Kb free. That means I'm using 462396 Kb, which is 452 Mb. Vista is actually using less memory than x64 Pro does.

I read somewhere that Vista has some kind of special mode when gaming that allows windows to "sleep" in the background, dedicating most of the resources to the game. It seems like it might run games better than XP.

I only use about 500-600MB of my PF and thats after running lots of programs and games and not rebooting for a few days.

You've got to see why he says it runs crappy on his system. He's using Intel integrated graphics card and trying to run the Aero Glass theme. Duh. He's also obviously a MacOS/Linux Fanboy... I think I'll hold judgement until I can bittorrent a full copy...

I think running the Aero glass with the integrated graphics is what's chewing up most of his memory. It says in almost every preview of Vista that any PC's running integrated graphics should turn of the aero glass theme. So obvioulsy this is a poor choice for a test.

good point there, and judging by this, a good rig will run it fine (NOT on intergrated graphics)

but think about this, BF2 lags on 1 gb of ram, what would BF2 be like with vista!

i suppose for the people who cant afford it, they can use the vista skin for xp and just try to make themselves belive that its acutally vista

Just because it asks for 2 gigs or more doesnt mean it needs it.
Think of all the things you can turn off and such on xp.
