    im not suprised...
    i found vista gimmicky after a while and i stopped using it

    isnt that last graph wrong?
    It says that both xp versions performed 100% better than vista and that SP3 is 10% than SP2. The graph however shows that vista runs better than SP1 and they performed better than xp. and SP2 is better than SP1.

    Wait... am i looking at it wrong? Lower must be better, am i right?

    Yes, lower is better. It shows that Vista takes twice as much work/power/memory (whatever the last chart represents) than XP to do the same tasks.

    I hope this does not start another vista war like we had last month...but this time there are benchmarks on SP1 by OP, XD.

    May the benchmarks be with you~

    Well, my brother says Vista isn't for gaming, so we always use Windows XP (SP2) on our Home PCs for gaming.

    My laptop has Vista Home Premium, and it's doing fine in games like Portal, Halo2, etc.

    Vista is just fine for gaming if you have a good enough rig. UT3 and COD4 run great for me. I haven't noticed any performance issues when I switched over to Vista.

    Yep... That's true.

    2GB DDR2 and Athlon X2 4400+ with 512KiB of Cache.

    150 GB HD on a sidenote. (Which blows in my opinion.. What was I thinking? [​IMG] )

    Aren't Games for Windows pushing towards Vista?
    Anyways, if I ever got the chance to get a new computer, I'd choose Vista. Then dual boot with XP if I hated it.

    I hope this will result in 10% more FPS in my games.

    Too bad XP SP3 doesn't include DirectX10! Please Microsoft we're begging you [​IMG]

    Vista really isn't as bad as some people make it seem to be. Funny cause I used to be one of those people. I have no idea what I was thinking [​IMG]. I still think OS X Leopard is the superior OS on the market though. Note on the market. Linux is cool and all but to get everything in your PC you might have to do a lot of work.

    You think windows 95 is fast? Just wait until you try windows 3.1!

    Or even DOS, goes as fast as you can type.
