Windows XP SP3 RC Is Now Available For Public Download

Microsoft had just added the much anticipated Service Pack 3 Release Candidate for the Windows XP Operating System (OS) to their download center last night. The Windows XP SP3 RC is now available for all Windows XP users, and it seems that even those with "Un-Genuine" Windows XP OS installed in their systems can also download and install the RC...

This will also be beneficial for XP gamer since it will boost the performance for around 10% more :D

OMG THIS IS AWESOME!!! I actually have a performance gain with my games. Now I'll be playing Crysis at a smoother framerate. ^___^

I tested this with the CS:S Video Stress Test:

Service Pack 2 - 127.80fps

Service Pack 3 - 188.55fps

Now those are amazingly instant results!

Team Fortress 2 runs a lot better. I got around a 25% performance boost!

When looking over the battlements in 2fort, I get 60 FPS now with SP3 instead of 45 FPS before with SP2.

xp is windows98 to vista's millenium.

Windows XP is to windows 98 as Vista is to Windows ME.
And I don't agree vista has all the great makings of an OS its no where near as bad as ME was, its like XP, 98, and 95 were before the first service packs.

ME was bad, Vista isn't that bad but it does need some more work.
