Ok, I need help..... I am about to install XP, and I need to know wheatehr to install it with the FAT 32 file ssytem or the NTFS system. I am a hardcore gammer, so I would like to know if anyone has had any problems using NTFS when it comes to gamming of any kind?

Ok, I've decided to go with only XP. What i really need to know now is.
A. Will NTFS give me lots of problems when it comes to gamming?
B. If I have a secondary HD which is just for storage, and is already using FAT 32, will XP read it, and can I transfer files back and fourth?

you would be silly not to install it as an ntfs...Much more reliable..:D

Notice that several games (regardless of the file system you use) will not work properly if installed and/or run under a normal user account (you have to be a computer administrator).

if you system is under 600mhz and u are using a 5400 rpm hard drive or slower on an ata/66 or slower cable, ntfs will be much slower....but u will not hit any problems..for gaming, the hard drive performance only affects loading times, not gaming or fps...

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
