    Getting my new comp today

    whats better vista or xp?

    That completely depends on your system, as well as your preferences.

    I personally use XP still, simply because i am familiar with it and have had very little issues.

    What are the specs on your new system?

      Nvidia cards on XP give slightly better FPS with UT3. See the Memory Test section of this hardware review at Gamespot.

        XP performs better - Doesn't matter which game you are playing and which type of GPU you are using. On top of this, very few DirectX 10 effects are noticably improved over DX9 at this stage.

        Vista is a system hog, has many driver issues and has annoying DRM.

        Perhaps, in a year or 2, Vista will be better. Then again, it me be Windows Me revisited and be best forgotten.

          That might not be true for all cases when it comes to the GPU. I should have linked to this before, but the Gamespot comparison page for operating systems with UT3 (down below the video card section) shows that a Radeon HD 2900 XT gets minimal gain in XP. Perhaps Nvidia is better optimized for XP, and ATI is doing a better job with both.
