Ive been currently using XP for a fair few years now, and ive been happy. Tried Vista a few times, but since I was running it on a low spec machine (AMD athlon XP 2600+) I preffered XP due to the slow loading times (on my machine) and compatibility issues on Vista.
However this was a few years ago, now Im setting up a new rig, I was wondering, for all the people who are Vista users, is there any need for me to upgrade to Vista, or shall I just stick with good old XP?
Here the specs of my new rig (not amazing but decent for my price range)
Motherboard: MSI K9A2 Platinum
Processor: AMD Phenom Quad Core 9850 (Black Edition)
RAM: 4 x 1GB OCZ DDR2 PC2-6400 (800Mhz)
GFX Card: Club3D GeForce 8800GT 512MB
PSU: eXtreme 600W
HDD: 400GB SATA Barracuda 7200
Ive also read that there are RAM limits for XP, a bit over 3GB for 32bit systems, but more for 64bit systems, is this true? and will this be a factor in which OS i should choose?
