Thread: To XP or not to XP?

    I'm building a new system and still use Win98. I've heard a lot of questions from friends about the stability of XP and it's compatibility with games. I've also heard that MS has "fixed" some of the compatibility problems. So what's the scoop as of now? Is it worth it to go to XP if you are a gamer?

    I think it is because it is stable (has some quirks) and can be performace tuned. Great for handling more memory and applications. ;)

    :geek: XP is great. I have had no problem even with older programs or games.

    Sooner you upgrade to an NT os, the better.
    Escape 9x asap.

    :D Remember that XP has compatibility modes that can be used if you have difficulty with running a game/program. Go for it.

    Thanks all. I've gone ahead and upgraded. Now have an ASUS P4T533-C mobo, P4 2.26, and PC1066 RDRAM. Should be fun! I appreciate all the thoughts.
