God, not this bull#@& again. We Vista users can do nothing but snicker every time you let this fly out of your mouth. There is no difference in gaming performance 99% of the time between the operating systems. I've even seen some cases where Vista was faster.
Let your hate of Vista go and look at things in reality. Your Crysis comparison is not the least bit analogous. You're comparing a version of the game that, by default, is not compatible with very high settings against a version that is. That's downright stupid. At the same exact settings, they are identical.
