So in a couple weeks im gonna build a new gaming system. Im wanting to build a fairly good system for like $1400. I already have everything picked out but I cant decide weather to put Vista or XP on it. I know about how Vista has all the problems with it, but it does run DX 10 which is a big plus cuz im putting in a GeForce 8800 in it. So I would like some of your opinions on it. Thanks.
Currently DX10 is only a very small marginal improvement over DX9c.
Vista is non playable for gaming unless you have at lest 2 gig of memory.
For gaming Win XP will be the better choice for the next 18 to 24 months.
Really if you can get a copy of Win 2K, play your games on it and then got to Vista. That will give you a really good base to make a decision.
What you can do in 2K with only 1 gig of mem, you can't do in Vista.
Microsoft is sure pulling the con in consumer.
