Better, but still not perfect. I have some lock ups here and there, but overall its a good improvement over SP1 and definitely over RTM. I'm running the integrated Vista SP2 iso from Technet.

If you're having lockups at this point, I'd call the hardware into question. Either a faulty/very incompatible device, a bad overclock, or a bad driver. The vast majority of systems out there are well past the "OS randomly locking up" days. Regular systems running mainstream operating systems simply don't DO that anymore.

Don't overclock. Newest official release drivers for all components. System is rock solid under XP 64. I've had a few hangs with the game explorer, Firefox and Explorer (not IE). And its not the whole OS, its only the shell or certain apps.

I don't know if its a driver, the fact I have an X-Fi, or what, but I just don't have these problems under XP 64. I'm not necessarily blaming Vista, but the combination of components just don't as well for my configuartion under Vista as it does for XP.

Disk I/O performance still isn't as good as XP 64, but I'll get over it.

As far as Vista instability, I had some serious issues with crashes when I first switched to Vista Ultimate x86. I had two problems that were causing it. The first was Creative's X-Fi drivers. The 2nd was an improper install of nForce RAID drivers. I removed the X-Fi and switched to onboard audio, then did a reformat with a proper driver install of all devices. I haven't heard so much as a peep from this PC ever since. It's been rock solid.

Any idea on the list of changes? Anything worth noting?
