    as far as I'm conserned, XP is 2k... once I get done tweaking all the extra crap out of it, XP look and feels just like 2k anyway

    XP will probably be what you want though, it has a bunch of small changes over 2k that make life a little easier for the average user. As for gaming, benchmarks, and DC... I don't think it makes a lot of differnce if you're going to tweak them both for performance anyway.
    I've gone too far and need to move on!

    xp is optimized for graphics performance while 2000 is a workhorse business OS so xp is better for gaming, etc. then 2000 no matter how much you tweak 2000.

    Win2k will score a few hundred points higher in 3dm01 on an AMD than XP. There's almost no difference for Intel.
