Default Vista

February 9th, 2007, 21:45
Well after running the Beta and now Vista Home premium retail. I really like all the features and extra diagnostics and apps you get. And i wouldnt go back to XP. I may have lost up 5% performance from beta drivers. But most everything runs fine. It takes a few days for vista to learn your most used programs to cache into system ram. I turned off indexed search. your milage may very.
What i have been playing…
Gothic 3.. runs fine, but increased cache to high under details. smoother than xp
BF2142.. runs fine.
Tribes Vengeance.. same
Quake 4.. same

My modest system:
P4 prescott @3.0 ghz
Intel 865perl MB
2 gigs pc3200 supertalent
BFG 6800gt w/ forceware 100.59
creative X-Fi w/ latest web drivers
creative Alchemy project. directsound3d wrapper
hauppauge PVR 150

my 2 cents
