    The only compability issue I had was that I couldn't run SimCity 2000 (that is from 1993 anyway)

    Go with Vista, it's worth it no matter what the XP fanboys say

    I've been running vista home premium x64 since February, and had no problems with any games yet. The only games I've installed on it are:
    BF2
    BF2142
    Bioshock
    HL2:Orange pack

    Vista itself has caused no BSODs or anything, that was just my bad overclocks causing my RAM to be unstable.
    I believe having SP1 streamlined onto the disk fixed this

    I have been running Vista Business X64 since last summer and have had absolutely 0 BSOD's. I have only come across one incompatibility whereby i couldn't install ATI tool because of the signed signatures. All i did was download the latest beta version which fixed it.

    It's time to make the jump to Vista

    Re: Vista or XP

    Ive been running vista ultimate for about a year now and I haven't had that much problems. I can understand people that don't know anything about computers getting frustrated with vista. But most problems I have run into are minor and I can figure them out pretty easily. My games also run good and my computer isn't all that great.

    Microsoft just stop the sales of XP, soon most outlets will run out so might as well just go with Vista and save the trouble of upgrading later.

    started a topic Vista or XP

    Vista or XP

    Reason I'm making this thread is that I'm getting a new system this week, and I'm considering running games on DX10, and I know games like Crysis have a patch which allows them to run DX10 under XP. The reason I stayed XP for this long is that Vista doesn't have all the hardware drivers compatible and I hear people were having problems, and some still do.

    So is it worth changing the OS just to play games on DX 10 high setting or is it not much of a difference? I plan on getting Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit ($174 USD), I just think Home Edition is just not worth the money.

    I know Vista is better at least theoretically, but until its all ironed out and fixed XP will be better, since most software was developed specifically for XP. So guys post your opinions Vista or XP. And hows SP1 did it fix much?
