      Hello, to answer your question

      From a non technical approach – I would say worst case scenario is your gaming performance would be the same as in Vista, I doubt very much if gaming performance can degrade by using Win2008Workstation. BUT in my experience games actually run faster in Win2008Workstation. Again, just in my experience XP is the best OS around for games atm. My direct-x 10 games still work a lot quicker in XP. One thing I have noticed is an overall improvement in the smoothness of the games, less jerking for some reason as in Vista, my games used to jerk around a bit.

      So to answer your question, if you’re thinking of Migrating from Vista, then go for it, but if you’re running XP Natively purely for games, then I would say stick with XP.
