Nice one :) "Buy the PCMark Vantage now!" *testing system compability* "Sorry, you need to have Windows Vista to run Vantage, but DO try our PCMark05 it runs on XP!"

System Requirements
# Other

* Windows Media Player 11
* Latest DirectX Update for Windows Vista
* Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

Eeeww :) Even if it would run on XP, no way I'd install IE7 not to mention WMP11 (well, seems it's already somehow on my computer but asking for privacy options, not that I'll answer it). Media player 6.4.xx.xxxx ftw!

GOod luck benchmarking DX10 on XP...

This is supposed to be the most up to date. 3d Mark is a benchmarking program. If you're into benchmarking, you probably can afford vista.... get it.
