    i was gonna submit this thread under operating systems but as i only want to know about people with nvidia graphics cards i decided to post it here,i would like to know how many of you are still using xp and if you are happy with that,i`ve been using vista ultimate 32bits for 2 months and i have to say that nvidia is doing a fantastic job,at first with the drivers 165.01 , stalker and some games were unplayable and i was also getting that error nvldkm stoped working wich made me serious think about going back to xp ,but before i do that i decided give it a go with the 158.22 drivers and the results were superb any single 3d application is working flawlessly,games like stalker ,oblivion and tomb raider legend(all games that required alot of memory) are all running like a dream .so if u`re think about giving vista a go id say that is safe and stable enough now,like a said before the only company in terms of vista support that is taking a piss big time is creative

    Dual boot, dont particulary like the Vista interface for everyday use. Couple that with the fact that games run worse in most cases, best to keep to XP until the DX10 games start arriving.

    Dual booting w/XP Pro and Vista, too. There are still quite a few softs, and games I like that don't play nice with Vista.

    Dual boot, xp pro x86 and Vista Ultimate x64, Vista still holds a poor performance for my applications mainly 3ds max.

    lol!


    Anyways, I'm using XP for the most, because I still have applications which are not compatible with Vista. I think I won't be switching untill the first DX10 games are out!

    Still using XP here, will be for at least another yet, will have a look at Vista once its got better driver support, and had a service pack or 2, XP's running great. :)
