    Well you'll likely have performance differences between the two OS's, so you're not doing a proper like for like comparison.

    Not neccessarily, but I do remember some of the early reviews comparing Vista to XP on things such as 3d performance. Obviously back then Graphics drivers designed for XP were far more mature and drivers for Vista were going through an optimisation phase.
    As for now, i have no idea as to how big the differences would be. We've also seen service pack 2 for Vista recently and of course Vista supports DX10.

    I think now you've installed Vista, your best bet is to compare your results to those of all the many reviews out there and see if your card is placed where it ought to be.

    Without you testing say your GTS250 in XP and then in Vista without you changing any other hardware/settings, you won't know just what differences there are.

    If you ever read the release notes with an Nvidia driver release, you'll see that in recent months there have been quite large percentage increases in performance for popular games and benchmarks.

    I've done the test with physX disabled ,there is no difference. I think its the GPU ,needing more power from the cpu i guess.

    As far as I remember it makes a big difference to my CPU score in 3dmark Vantage having PhysX enabled/disabled. I'll check it later.
