I say XP because the 9600GT isn't a card that will allow you to max out stuff on DX10, however it will let you max out some stuff on DX9. Also, with 2GB of RAM you have much more room in XP than in Vista.

our of interest why is it 32 bit XP vs vista 64 bit ??

in all honesty i would probably say 32 bit vista if it was an option

if not then i would really be torn between the 2 like yourself but in the end probably go with vista 64 bit.

You already have XP? If so, then it's not worth the extra cost to upgrade (because it would be an upgrade) to Vista.

If this were a new rig and you were choosing between the two, then Vista 64 would be the obvious choice.
