Default Re: 3DMark performance difference in Vista

Vista itself runs a little "heavier" so I guess its normal that in 3D the performance drops a little. Vista uses more resources and is running (a lot) more processes in the background.

Edit; I think its not Vista thats incompatible with games; I think the old games itself are incompatible with vista. I think DX10 games will run a lot better because they are devved for Vista and DX10.
