OK, so I know Vista is a components whore. Everyone does. However, will this actually effect my gaming performance at all? I just got a new vide ocard, and don't what the fact that I'm running Vista to skew my benchmark scores in any way. I am still yet to perform any benchmarks with XP and the new card.<br />
<br />
Help would be reputable <img src="/images/smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Big Grin" class="inlineimg" />

I would just stay with xp untill two things happen<br />
<br />
1) There are vista ONLY games not just the same game but with dx10.<br />
2) You have hardware that can stand a 10-15% loss on all dx9 games even games like oblivion and such.

Alright, I'm officially going back to XP. Maybe I can trade my Dad my XP Home for his XP Pro and get it even faster...<br />
<br />
Also, would the 64-Bit Vista have any advantages over XP Home?
