    i recently upgraded my mobo & cpu a few months ago.
    i got a intel core 2 quad q8300 & a intel dp43tf mobo.
    i did a low level format of my hdd and did a clean install of xp home edition.
    i downloaded and installed all patches i also installed sp3, and downloaded and installed the most recent chipset driver for my mobo i even flashed the bios to the most recent version, or will i need to upgrade to vista?
    i ask because when i install any game it takes about an hour or more,
    will i need to install vista (which i have):cry

    I don't really see a problem tbh.

    Mafia 2, Crysis warhead & gta 4 (each game took about an hour (except mafia 2 it was a little over an hour) per game)).:(
