I'm back to XP 32-bit due to extreme frustration w/Vista's activation scheme in regards to overclocking.

Back to XP 32 here cause I was tired of losing 10%+ of my gaming performance just running Vista. Vista wasnt bad just slower.

What's happening? I've never heard of anyone having to re-activate after an OC.

I'm happy with Vista 32.

The only thing I hate is how it handles VPU recoveries. In XP, I never had a driver crash or any errors, I load up Vista and start to get 'driver quit responding' crap even though I never had a single issue in XP. I wish you could just disable it without losing Aero.

Ummm.... 4-5 FPS in Crysis is like a 15-20% performance increase. Bad example
