    Default not really a hardware problem. but..

    So i have been wondering what Os ya'll use.
    I right now play either on Ubuntu or win 7-64 or vista 32.
    thinking about installing Xp for the heck of it.. what do ya'll think.
    my FPS are about the same in vista/7 and about 10 fps lower in Ubuntu. think it'dd be any better in XP?

    lemme know what ya'll got.

    i use both on dual boot Xp pro on one raptorX hard drive and then Vista ultimate on my other RaptorX.

    If your going to run more than 2 GPUs and more than 3 gigs of memory, vista is the only way.

    Whats your system specs n00b ?

    it's not all that great. AMD 64x2 4200, evga 9800gt 4 gb ram. 2x 1 tb seagate for storage, 3 320gb for os's, 24" wide screen.

    right now i have PAE turned on so i can address the other 512 mb ram. it's currently set to my ram drive. and of corrse in win 7 and Linux they both see all the ram.
    that really isn't the issue though. i usualy only use about 1.5-2. gb ram. i think only every now and then have i used more. (autocad) slowed my comp to a crawl.

    For gaming i think the best OS to use is XP. long as the games are directX 9 and lower. Vista on the other hand for new new games DX10 and soon to be DX11 is the way to go. I mainly play CSS only when i do get to play and it runs much smoother on XP over vista.

    Hope that helps out some.
