well, your have a nice hardware config, but it's teh SLI mode that Vista has
had the most trouble. In their latest Beta build of drivers, they just added
some SLI support. So with it steal being in beta, your mileage may vary.
As a gamer (half your age and so a lot less patients) I would recommend
sticking with XP for as long as you can.I still think it will be a good 6
months, before the DX10 games are in full stride and I suspect games like
Crysis and BIOshock are going to have some growing pains as well. So
Sticking with Xp another 4-6 months might save you some headaches.
I'm playing around both with the 32bit and 64 bit flavor of vista, and at
best Vista runs just a smidge behind XP. On OpenGL games like Doom3, it runs
about 25-35fps slower. Though with your hardware, you won't feel it so I
guess it doesn't matter.
