    Cyberthug, Ultimate allows ten if I remember correctly. Their ultra-stripped version only allows two, and there are a two others between them that I would have to look up. Still, ten is a long way from 65536!! Maybe the guy who maintains that tool will update it for Vista.

    I have issues with UT3, Silent Hunter III, Silent Hunter IV, WoW, and almost everything else on Vista. Vista is currently at what normal people would call "beta stage". Microsoft however, does not share this view and enjoys feeding us incomplete operating systems with intrusive software installed. You should google for Vista and Europe, or maybe Britain. I forget which, but a large portion of the world refused Vista and did something to prevent it from coming over due to some of the more intrusive features on Vista.

    That aside, Vista is still not stable for most games, it isn't as fast as XP, and it fails horrendously on systems with less than a gig of RAM.

    Cyberthug, Vista is crippled in OpenGL, OpenAL, and networking. The stock "tcpip.sys" file in Vista is set as low as two concurrent TCP sessions. On XP it was 65536 prior to SP2, where they choked it down to ten. This slowed down a LOT of networking applications and even broke things like P2P apps. In XP you can run a tool to set it to what you want it at, but it does not work under Vista yet. Tell me what distro of Vista you have and I can tell you how many TCP sessions you can have at once. More simultaneous connections equals more throughput.

    dunno not having this issue in vista, maybe unticking the openal driver in ut3 works.

    Crashing and freezing?

    I too have Vista 32bit installed and all is well here. Everything is ok here(apart from the crashing/freezing in ut3, but thats common) and I would say install Vista.

    Though XP wins a little on game performance over Vista, the gap is minor (eg. 60fps vs 58 fps). But Vista has DirectX10 or above; this may quickly become a main advantage over XP on future games or UT3's dx10 patch.
    The biggest problem for vista is memory issue. You have 2G ram, that's enough to run Vista.

    Best way to find out is to make a dual boot and compare for yourself. This issue has been beaten to death allready. Xp seems faster, but if everything runs smooth and just the way you want it in Vista, then it's rlly up to you which os you prefer.

    At the moment I run UT3 @ 1680 x 1050 res, with all detail setting on 5 and average on 100/120 fps in Shralingla (something like that ) my vsync is disabled thou, the lowest fps i got was in the 70 by a waterfall looking straight at it

    I've decided to only upgrade to a high quality vista when the majority of games stop directx9.
    Or when I give in to good graphics.
