Re: What operating system would be best for my system?
I seem to be a little late on this, but you said light gaming so why not use Windows 7 since it won't effect you that much. If you are going to be gaming daily and want very high fram rates then use XP. But personally I would just go with Windows 7 and you should be fine for light gaming.
