BF2142 crashes all the time for me with Vista since the 1.25 patch.

Test Drive Unlimited stutters with some drivers and crashes too often with the latest drivers (TDR error).

I got sick of it. Fixed my XP partition and now I'm playing those games on XP.

COH and HL2 episode 1 work fine on Vista.

Hmm strange BF2 works just fine, as does the Steam Dark Messiah - was just playing that the other day..

heres what i have installed:

http://homepages.nildram.co.uk/~lumpyhed/game.jpg

I've gotten Alchemy to give me surround with every DS3D title so far either through whats given or via custom entries. :)

Problematic:
FEAR - runs better on my 360
SupCom - would crash after an hour or so, tho i believe this is resolved with the 2GB bin mod (CF Explorer)
Just Cause - xtreme stutter which makes it go from the smooth 60fps to 20-
Gothic 3 - seems to lose detailed textures, eventually crashed with out-of-memory error after 10 minutes (on 4Gs!)
Armed Assault - forgets to load various textures
Spectaculator - doing the wrong thing can cause Aero to stop working
Lemonade - always switches off Aero in a window.
Condemned - couldnt get this to play on my second screen.

Failed;
Solders Heroes of WWII - despite having a rating in Game Explorer & a 'vista patch' which just removes starforce, this game wont load and Codemasters say it wont ever work..

Overall things run pretty well i think given the driver model changes!

The latest drivers that they got out..works great..ie the SLI works..but jesus performance is bad..but SLI is running, i cannot recall graphical errors or anything like that..so i am hoping..next driver release = winner for me and will be my main OS from there onwards...alot of the games i have run SLI fine..but @ low performance, and no graphical errors.

I think single card users have pretty good success atm, the latest drivers are very solid...SLI on the other hand has performance issues.

I have habit of buying, installing then not much playing :p I guess thats aid by lots of drive space..
I tend to get the most play at Lan's these days it seems. If i am playing right now its either Faces of War, Titans Quest or Killing Floor :)

Heh - I was actually getting better performance from a single card than in SLI in 3DMark06 and Oblivion with Vista Ultimate 32-bit. I have since gone back to XP for now.

Does Vanguard run well in Vista? I'd heard the performance was terrible (not that it exactly runs like a dream in XP), and that's the only thing that has kept me from upgrading.
It works but its about 5-10 FPS less then you would normaly get. Its a big memory hog. you need at least 2gb before even thinking about playing it in vista.

It should run fine on your system. I wouldnt let vanguard hold you back from upgrading.
