Help choose operating system

Hi I have just built a new computer using XP Pro x 64 free trial, works ok. The problem is my old games wont run even with patches installed ie Colin Mcrae 2004 so I have ruled out 64 bit
Would I have this problem with 32bit Vista or any other problems, or should I stick to XP
Thanks Bill

Some games will inevitably have problems with Vista 32bit, especially older games, it's very much a "Try it and see" situation.

Have you considered a dual boot with XP 32bit and Vista 32 bit, which is my preferred configuration. You can always upgrade to either 64 bit OS at a later date.
