I've heard some people say that if i install Windows 7 I won't be able to play any games. Is that true?

Here, I will correct this for you

I've heard some people say that if i install Mac Leopard I won't be able to play any games. Is that true?



There we go.

All kidding aside, I have no problem playing anything by valve, lord of the rings online, S.T.A.L.K.E.R (both SoC and clear sky), Assassins Creed, AA3, Audiosurf, TQIT and more. I do have a few issues with Sid Meier's CivIV and xpacs shutting down at startup (random), but I am sure this will probably be fixed or they will probably show how to make it compatible.

This is all while running Windows 7 RC1
Windows 7 RC1 x64 // CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo e8400@3.6Ghz, 1.328v // Motherboard: EVGA 122-YW-E173, 750i SLI // Ram: 4GB OCZ DDR2 1066 5-6-6-18, 2.1v // Video Card: EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 SC @702/1476/1107(2214) // Power Supply: Rosewill 650W RT650-135-SL

The only game I could not get to run on 7 was Neverwinter nights! Even with compatibility mode..
IUf you have problems with games just run the compatibility troubleshooter and it will fix most problems wth your games

I play the same games as Farinhir plays plus COD 4 FEAR etc.. And all play
