Saturn, my D3d games are much faster under XP than win9x anyway. So either way you get top of line performance.

D3D performance is more of an issue under Windows 2000, but since when do us happy XP users care about it?

Pure speed with 100% compatibility and stability
Not 1 crash that was caused by windows XP ever.
Overclocking my video card to extreme amounts doesn't count
