    i am currently thinking of buying a new computer and wondered if i should get the brand new vista OS. is it worth it? i like to play a couple of games every once in a while and heard a couple of things about how bad vista is with games. Should i get an XP?? or Vista?

    If i had to get an XP where should i go to get it since every place i check out is selling the new Vista operating systems??????

    How hard is it to look around in this forum and see how many other people asked similar questions ?

    Notice they even got answers, so maybe, and do tell me if i'm out on a limb with wild ideas here, but maybe one of those answers might work for you as well...

    The same places you found to have "only Vista" will have systems with XP, just ask.
    i take it we are talking about proper stores, not cr@p like bestbuy and other major chains ?

    DVDdunce9, not all people who bought a computer with vista on it like vista. i think dvdback23 bought a laptop with vista on it & ended up blowing the hd out to put xp on it.

    It's true that games will run a little faster on windows XP systems. This is due to the fact that vista requires more resources slowing down intensive apps like games and also that the major video card manufactures have not released very good drivers for the new OS. If you want to buy a computer with xp then just buy it online from sites like tigerdirect.com and newegg.com.
