Which OS?
 
My Leadtek Motherboard popped several caps and I had to send it back for RMA. I got an inexpensive Shuttle AN35N Ultra for the duration.

Here at home I have several systems running XP but mine is the last hold out of win9x. After throwing in the new motherboad my system wants to hang in call of duty. I am planning on reinstalling the OS.

What do you guys recomend. I have

98
98se
ME
XP Pro corp
2003 corp

will XP drivers work in 2003 - does it do ok in games?

98se/XP corp in a dual-boot. Install 98se on one partition, then install XP on another.

There are just too many advantages to the set-up I've found, it's the only way to fly if you can. :)

Not to interested in a dual boot. When I sit down I have a 4 way KVM switch with
1 XP box sharing internet, files and printers
2 Mandrake 9.2 850 P3 256 meg and a voodoo 3 3000
3 XP test rig with a tnt2 ultra 850 P3 256 meg
4 ?? was ME 2400+ nforce 2 400 radeon 8500 512 meg ddr 128 bit


It was the last 9x hold out in the house My Wife and 3 sons all run XP
I guess I could put 9X on my test rig for any old games, they would probably run fine on a tnt2 uktra 850 anyway.

all games are now being written for XP, so you might as well go with the flow. XP works fine for me - I play UT, UT2k3, Unreal2, Unreal2 XMP, Halo, NFS, and many different console emulators.

XP Home and Pro perform exactly the same for games and most other programs. The only thing Pro has is Domain network access, remote access, multi-CPU support. Those features often are not needed in a home network environment
