Vista was stable with my old system, completely unstable with my new one. Currently on XP64.

Vista 64 Ultimate with usually forced DX9, because I've yet to find a DX10 game I can play in DX10 mode at my desired 1280x1024 with a bit of AA and AF. E6600 @ 3GHz, 4GB and a 8800GTS 320MB isn't exactly ultra high end but the system is no slouch, at least not when I turn DX9 on.

really?

8800GTS should rip through DX10 at 1280x1024.

my 8800GT handles 1920x1200 on DX10 with no AA/AF.

Vista with DX9. Not that thousands of games support DX10 anyway...

Bait? I speak the truth. Assassin's Creed ran like Assassin's Crud in DX10 for me. WIC is passable but still significantly slower than DX9. Every other DX10 game I've played is the same story. I tried just about every driver but the results vary little.

The 320MB model is the lowest of the 8800 series I believe, so perhaps that explains it, but then again I'm not asking for a whole lot when I try to run DX10 so I dunno why I can't seem to run it with acceptable results. Whatever the case, I've never found it viable to run a DX10 executable over a DX9 one. It seems pretty obvious to me DX10 in this card generation is reserved for the high end.

Ya same here. It depends on the game. For universe at war I turn off DX10.
