im getting a new pc for everyday stuff but mostly gaming. But i don't know if to stay with XP or go Vista.
I've lots of stories about Vista taking up alot of speed when playing games and i am worried that i will have loads of problems with it.
Because it's the newest its very appealing but should i stick with the reliable and easy to use XP. ?
Thanks

This question has been posted many times.

Read through this forum and you will find lots of widely differing views and you will still have to make your own mind up!

Use XP, defi nately. Vista can decrease fps by about 20 sometimes. At least disable aero

i would stick with xp, as i know it works with all the new games and it is a reliable system, and with vista i lose about 15fps on my games so stick with xp.

Knowing nothing about games compatibility of XP or Vista and you're buying a new PC; then think of the next few years. What is the future of PC gaming. If you have a PC windows XP already and can use as a standby then why stick to XP? Wouldn't make sense to me.
Though having said that I think the forum members here that are gamers think otherwise.

If I was a gamer my next PC would be Vista.

I'd get windows 7 because of it's stability and other features xp is slacking already so use a system that can support newer games, old ones work on 7 too.
