Actually Vista's incompatibility with games 64 or 32 is quite a myth. There are as much problems with games on XP as there are on Vista. It's a thing called mass social assumption syndrome, or MSAS. People taking other people words for what they are, words.

Then how come there are still more programs being developed and sold for XP? If Vista is so great, why is XP still so popular? I've seen Vista in action, and it is not worth the upgrade. It's a broken, seemingly bootleg version of XP that just has more pretty colors. Sorry for going off topic, but I just had to let that out. Back on topic: have fun with DX 10... lucky bastard. :lol:

That computer is awesome. Have a good time. But like the others are saying, get rid of vista if you expect to do anything gaming with it.

^Vista's not quite that bad, I run Crysis at a higher graphics level, at a higher frame rate, then I do in XP AND If you have the system that can handle Vista and handle it well (Such as the above) Then its a fine OS, biggest issue is 64bit incompatability, 32bit incompatability is like non existant for me. Yes I use vista, on my laptop, its fine, on my desktop its fine. Yes I have dual boot with XP, yes I use XP mostly, yes I rather XP, Just Vista does't deserve all the wrap it takes, and yes, I'll continue to use XP
