Interesting. I want to see how things look and how games perform compared to Vista.

it wont, cause microsoft is smart, they put some vital code inside of the kernel in vista, that XP doesnt have that is required to run DX10. either that or it is just dx9.0c in disguise, several of the file names start with "Dx9" and such.

minimum
CPU: Athlon 64 3000+/Intel 2.8GHz; Graphics: NVIDIA 6600/X800GTO (SM 2.0); RAM: 768MB/1GB; HDD: 6GB; Internet: 256k+; Optical Drive: DVD; Software: DX9.0c with Windows XP
reccomended
CPU: Dual-core CPU (Athlon X2/Pentium D)
Graphics: Nvidia 7800GTX/ATI X1800XT (SM 3.0) or DX10 equivalent
RAM: 1.5GB
HDD: 6GB
Internet: 512k+ (128k+ upstream)
Optical Drive: DVD
Software: DX10 with Windows Vista

although drivers are pretty bad right now, a 8800GTS 640MB is BARELY maxing it out at 1280x1024 i think.
