Default Re: Vista vs XP?

Need some advice. I know there is a large performance gain in XP with DX9 tweaks with near DX10 "very high" quality. Nevertheless, there still seems to be a consesus that DX10 "very high" still looks superior.

Tomorrow I'll be getting the parts for my new setup (Q6600, GTX, 4GB Ram) and I'm trying to decide if I should even bother installing Vista x64 as opposed to just installing XP.

This system will be hooked up to an HDTV and I'll run everything at 1366x768. Does anyone have any experience with a similar system under DX10 very high at that resolution and if so is the game playable meaning something like an average of 20 or so fps?
