It's been 3 years since my last PC upgrade and the Tax Cheque is coming in. With the X38 Chipset around the corner and 1333Mhz INtel CPU's just out I thought now is as good a time as any to upgrade (i.e Build a new system).

Now I am running VISTA on my 'old' gaming rig with no games installed as the old 6800GT has been relegated to 'Web Page renderer' and a PS3 is feeding my gaming urges. I know this is a very basic question but what OS to use for a pure gaming rig?

I have about 180 PC Games of which I'd probably install 50 games ranging from System Shock 2 right through to FEAR, PREY, C&C3 & Stalker. I have followed the Driver threads and it seems VISTA still suffers performance problems (But is improving). I have still yet to play PREY, FEAR or OBLIVION (I know but my poor system would never do them justice).

What say you fellow gamers - WindowsXP or VISTA for gaming? System will have a 3.0Ghz Core Duo 2 CPU (6850), 8800GTX (Non-SLi for now) and about 4 Gig Memory.

Thanks for your time. Smile

Vista for sure, the crap that it eats TONS of sys resources are total BS. All it needs is 2GB ram and your PC will run much smoother than on XP(doesn't matter what CPU or VGA you have).

Hi Everyone,
My vote goes to Vista if you have to select from Windows XP/Vista, but if got to select from any Windows Operating Systems it has be Windows 7 without a doubt. It has much better visuals and provides a better working environment than Vista.
