Dead Space 3 is a simple console port that my Toaster could run.

Need for Speed Most Wanted PC is only using DX10 and DX11 (not technically supported by DX9 Win Xp)which is good cause maybe they put some time into the PC version.

Seriously, get out of the stone age already.

I have Win 7 but that doesn't change the fact that Vista is garbage compared to XP

Windows Vista reminds me of Windows ME.

vista may eat up memory, but it has newest directx capabilities unlike xp. Which inherintly makes it better for high end gaming then xp. XP is dead and is crap at this point. get over it and move in.. pickup windows 7 or 8 if u are unhappy with vista.

gamers don't need to be running XP anymore anyway, just use windows 7.i know a lot of people like XP because it runes older games ME/98/95 etc.but windows 7 has XP mode.

Would still be nice as an extra feature those who still want to run XP, but windows XP is 11 years old, support won't last forever.

Vista was the worst mess ever released. bugged to hell and back.

Windows 7 purely rocks.

Nobody wants win8.

Yeah i was kinda only thinking about gaming pc's.

Hated vista though, had to do a complete reformat and lost some files on gf's pc. Vista was a pain in the ass, win 7 fixed all that though:)
