Default Windows 7 and Gaming :)

Holy ****. I thought Crysis Warhead runs good on Vista. The way it runs on Windows 7, i have to say goodbye Windows Vista.

I want to apologize for bashing Windows 7 cause i wasn't expecting to be this good for gaming

I tripple boot Vista 32, Vista 64, Win7 64.

Vista 64 and Win7 64 bench the same, slightly slower than Vista 32.

Same, I see no difference in performance between the different OSs. I did see a difference in compatibility though. Older games seem to play nicer on Windows 7, think they worked on Compatibility mode abit more in Windows 7.

think fps performance will be the same...i think most people might notice a difference if they are on 2gb with loading times/hdd activity with their games..

IF I can get my hands on an MSDN copy of Win 7 x64 I'm gonna try it out on my media/gaming rig. Definitely.

I've heard it runs so fast in DOS that you have to wear a seat belt to play.
