Right now you are definitely better with XP. There is better driver support and no new games use DirectX 10 AFAIK.

I don't have any issues with gaming in vista that won't be solved by final build drivers over the coming weeks.

i don't have any issues with gaming right now

not slower or anything else. i'm not a "hardcore" gamer, but i do my fair share.
No games out use DX10... so? doesn't stop current games working

yeah..... and ATI also doesn't have a video card using unified shaders out yet..... let alone a card that supports DX10. They also have a much smaller base of people actually USING an ATI-based motherboard requiring ATI drivers. NVidia has to get good 8800GTX drivers out for both XP AND Vista..... as well as drivers for the 7-series cards for Vista, as well as NForce drivers for Vista and possibly updated ones for XP. If you ask me, NVidia has a lot more to work on than ATI could ever dream of.

And consequently have a larger developer team. The 100 series drivers work just fine for the 7000 and 6000 series PCIe cards.
