    I now have Serious Sam II, Star Wars Battlefront II, Starwars Empire at War, and Quake 4 installed on my parents computer. All of them seem to work fine so far.

    When will Microsoft release the full version of Windows Vista? Only the upgrades version is currently out, right?

    Shit, then why do all the stores sell only the upgraded versions? I must be blind or something… :confused:

    medieval 2 total war plays very nicely. looks even better in vista and runs as smoothly with the 1800xt 512 at 700/800 ! latest ati drivers with no ccc. im using atitool to run it on x64 ultimate and everything plays perfectly. im actually quite surprised.

    Guild Wars, Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, Europa Universalis III, Half Life 2/ Day of Defeat Source /Counter Strike Source, The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, The Movies, The Sims 2... and actually apart from some "AA missing in action" (caused by drivers) troubles I haven't seen anything wrong with them.

    I agree, & a GREAT + EVEN-HANDED analysis on your part...

    :)

    * Hey - how is the CHESS game on VISTA? I saw earlier last year it has one or did in beta @ least, & I LOVE CHESS!

    APK

    P.S.=> About to play some right now vs. my neighbor... got him 3x in a row last night, & hoping to continue this streak... what makes me better is playing a computer in it many times for a warmup prior to our "4 yr. long tournament" we have had going, lol! He doesn't know that yet... I come in 'warmed up' most times lately!

    Anyhow, a screenshot of it would be cool, if it's not too much trouble, & also if any of you have played it? Your thoughts on it... gracias! apk

    Its a simple but nice 3d chess game. You ahve a few options to change according to the board type and the material the pieces are made out of. You can mess with how good the computer is, and I believe you can even play it online.

    I just have BF2, Counter Strike: Source, Gmod10 and Half Life 2 installed.

    The only game I have issues with is Battlefield 2. It is a lot slower than it was on XP, although I can still max it out :p
