the minimum FPS is higher on Windows 7, and load times are shorter. Other than that, it's exactly the same.

I found Crysis to be the same on Vista and 7. Was faster on XP but no DX10 :: Not really a big loss though. ::

I'm dual booting it now...and it seems pretty good except the BSOD I always get on cold startups....must be a HDD delay setting er something.

Yeah, I had a problem with CoD4 and used that PBsetup program that scans for games and updates. Works ok now.

I have recurring problems with punkbuster in COD4-5, even when the pb is up to date and tested.

Lately I used this fix: http://msmvps.com/blogs/brianmadsen/...uster-fix.aspx, and haven't had a problem since, although this guy said the fix didn't solve everything.

You should try my cancer-curing Placebo (tm) brand medication. Cures warts too.

My King Kong: Gamer's Edition won't run because it's version of StarForce is too old and will not be made compatible with Windows 7 lol
