Yeah I give up with the all Anti-Vista Pro-XP stuff. No matter how many people say nuts to vista, go get XP, it doesn't matter. Micro$oft will inevitably discontinue XP altogether.
So at the moment how big of an impact would Vista have? I know it likes to keep a health diet of lots and lots of RAM but how much?
I = gamer
Gamer= Likes to play games
Vista = eats all recourses
How well would a system configuration of the following run?
Radeon HD 2600XT Video card (512MB of GDDR3 memory)
Athelon 64 X2 4800+ Brisbane 2.5Ghz Duo core(Plan to OC to the 3.0 mark)
G.SKILL 2GB DDR2 800 (PC2 6400)
I plan to play some pretty intense games (Yeah Crysis.)
Also the processor supports 64bit processing and I'm going to blow some money on Windows Vista Ultimate x64bit version.
This is also my first time actually running a running a Multi-core processor so I dunno what it exactly is.
What I would LIKE to be able to do with it is dedicate an entire core to operating system functions (*cough* Aero *cough*) And the other core specifically to applications or divide the stress evenly over the two cores.
If their any super calculator brains out their that want to give me an average FPS on Vista ultimate with the following games it would be much appreciated:
Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
Thanks in advance
