Actually no, if you like the best performance in your games right now use XP, if your a benchmarker use XP. If you don't care about either use vista.
If you have an 8800 the difference of 20 FPS when you are already well over 200 FPS is trivial. If you clamer for that extra FPS that your eyes can't see then by all means use XP. Id personally rather use Vista and know that in the next few months when the DX10 games roll out I will already be setup and familiar with the operation and will have already worked the bugs out of my system on Vista. Duel boot is also an option for the FPS nuts.
