Splinter Cell Double Agent
Crimson Skies (Works in Software Rendering apparently)
Gothic 3 (FPS problems, only works with 100.65 drivers)

Titan quest runs great
Quake 4 as long as you have the latest drivers (apparently opengl support wasn't great to start with)
NFS underground 2 (very playable, not as good as xp though)


Stay away from Splinter Cell Double Agent

Still Searching for my Q4 discs, i think my G/F may have pinched em. Gonna be installing HL2 sometime over the weekend, when i have the time to actually download all the updates for Steam, HL2, HL2 Ep1 and CS:S

STALKER Beta actually runs much better in Vista than in XP (I had a 5-15fps increase in some areas). It works without a hitch.

Quake 3 Arena works better in Vista than in XP as well (when using dual cores). In XP you have to set CPU affinity to get rid of stuttering, in Vista it just works without changing anything. :)

I haven't tested much else in Vista.

Prey works well in Vista-64.

Supreme Commander runs slower than XP, but I finished all 3 campaigns without any problems. Apparently the game crashes during skirmish mode, though I haven't tested whether it's a Vista-only crash or not.

I've had the game since the 15th actually. Europe, remember? :p And I got the LE Cybran pack, which was in stock even before the normal game. :) Not that big really. You can fast forward the campaigns as well, so it's about an hour each mission, for the longer ones, and 30-45 mins for the shorter missions. :)

Condemned Criminal Origins works fine in Vista 64bit = same preformance as Xp Pro.

Yeah, i installed Prey. Going quite nicely. I can't find my BF2 discs, or my Dawn of War discs... They'll be here somewhere. Flatout 2 and Painkiller work fine as well.

(I figured i'd just keep updating the list up top as it goes along, in case any other people are in my position)

I'd love to stick it on my list, but the question mark you put there seems a little doubtful.

I haven't tried DOW in vista because of this:

Application Limitations
These are known issues that need be solved by the application provider.
Warhammer 40k Dawn of War (all versions) does not run when using driver versions 100.xx.


Stoneyguy, what drivers did you use for DOW? Or have THQ patched the game?

I just loaded up the ArmA (Armed Assault) demo and it's definitely running faster and better than it does in XP at it's highest settings. I believe the english version is going to be available for download on Monday.
On a side note Blazing Angles also runs fine.

I can't run Dawn of War. I was able to run it in XP but can't now. it says my graphics card is not supported. i'm definitley sure a 7900gtx is supported.

What about Gothic 3 with the latest 100.65 driver?

for me it didn't work, maybe because of INI tweaks, i uninstalled it, and never got a chance to reinstall it again

Regarding Gothic 3, I read in another forum that the 100.64 and above drivers fixed it, but I hadn't seen anyone here make mention of it. I think I'll try it in Vista myself later if I get time.

Try it and let us know, i'd love to stick it on the list.
