    I tried it on both, and I had an fps difference of 1 on 3 different sized maps. I'm staying with Vista. The only way I would've stayed with XP would be at least a diffference of 10. I'm using Vista x64 and I tried it XP 64 and 32 (no difference)

      No you are not, because I'm wasn't not asking about XP32 vs Vista64. But Vista32 vs Vista64, I was asking what version of Vista he has. But looking at your bench, flyby at 2560x1600 is worthless because you are not bottlenecking:
      UnrealEngine script -> Unreal Engine Native -> 3rd party Direct3D library (Epic bought one a few years ago?) -> Direct3D -> System -> Drivers -> Motherboard Northbridge -> Motherboard southbridge -> PCI-e -> GPU registers.
      phew, I'm tired already, and everytime I write that thing I miss something, and pull other out of my a.. My point is you are only bottlenecking the card which is working internally, all that junk that depends on Windows is idling there. Besides, you are not even using sound or networking!
      As for the 128bit thingy...
      No man, I was just picking on you But x86-64 owns, the mode now has 14 general purpose registers available instead of 6 and everything could be done the way you are saying...

        I thought Vista 64 could only utilize a total of 8Gbs including Sustem memory (Video card mem, virtual pages, etc). Is that not the limit? I use only 6gbs DDR2 because I have 2 512's GDDR2 Vid mem and figure the system ballparks around 1Gb more...?

            Ah, I get it, it's the version.... Thanks for the info! I didn't realize they had different RAM caps.
