Is this a dual boot configuration? If not, are the computers identical?
Comparisons of performance of IE 8 on XP and Windows 7 are meaningless unless all other factors are equal. Windows 7 may perform better on identical hardware because it is newer and able to take advantage of hardware features that XP cannot.

IE8 was really designed for Windows 7, it was designed during the design of Windows 7 so it probably integrates much better and uses resources better. Try the comparison with Firefox, or roll XP back to IE7.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
