Vista Ultimate works fine with some games BUT NOT all, Untill M/S bring out a service pack it will have some problems, You gotta love and hate it. For one thing it is to heavy on security and causes some issues. I may yet go back to XP for gaming reasons. I currently have 4 PC's and 1 Laptop networked in the system and I play online gaming and LAN with my 14yr old. HL2 and Deathmatch Rocks. And Crysis, Crysis Warhead double rocks.
