I am wondering which OS is better for gaming, Vista or XP? I know Vista is supposed to have a lot of problems, but I am wondering if there are a lot of games out there that simply will not work with XP?

You sure do ask a lot of questions that could be easily answered by doing a little research. Simple answer: XP is better for gaming.

Some of the older games may not work with Vista (though all of my old games seem to). With modern games, I'd say that Vista is better... with the right video card. Vista supports DirectX 10, which improves image quality and sometimes even boosts performance over DX9.

Dual-core Opteron 185 @ 3.2GHz

Antec P182
Samsung 24" LCD
Vista 64

If you wanna cover all the bases, just dual boot your system...XP on one partition, Vista on another.
