Default Windows Xp compatibility

I am getting a laptop soon and Im sure Im getting one with Geforce GT 130M graphics. Would this card run well with windows XP? Im thinking about taking out vista that the laptop comes with and putting XP on it because im more used to it and it takes up less memory.

You should look up the drivers for the notebook computer you plan to buy and make sure that WinXP drivers are available before making a purchase.

What Russel said. Many of the new systems are designed with only Vista compatible drivers in mind.

Besides, your laptop should be just fine running Vista.
