OK i have 4gb in my pc. I have both windows and vista installed - within which OS would i be able to get the best performance out of my system to run games and programs? Knowing XP only lets you use about 3.5gb of ram?
depending on which vista you have the ram is also limited....32BIT limits to around 3GB while 64BIT Vista wil let u use all 4GB.
newer games would prob run better on vista as they would be built for it and direct x 10('games for windows 'on most of the boxes).
while the older games(b4 vista) would be better on xp.
hope this helps.
