    Guys i am having ever increasing problems with 2k and overclocking .

    I just installed service pack 3 and have a funny feeling this is the cause of all my problems.

    Just want to know if XP will give me better performance and stability in games.

    Just post ya specs and your OS for me so i can make a decision.

    As you can see from my specs that if anyone is running roughly the same specs but with XP i would love to hear from you.

    Cheers

    You'd be much better off with XP than 2K as 2K is really still the business NT os with a 9x like feel to it but as a gaming platform it's not a good choice. :smokin:

    I haven't seen a need to use sP3 for 2K, so I wouldn't have bothered.

    With XP, definitely put on SP1, and if you use that copy, just make sure you've got a generated key...

    SP1 on a clean install is a must. ;)
