Hi

I am gonna install/try out some games on my HTPC, but thought i might be better of setting up a dual boot system so I can keep the original install nice and clean.  Has anyone got any opinions on this or guides.  I have both Vista and XP, currently using XP.  I was thinking of going back to vista after i buy an 8600GT and then having a second boot for games.  I'm not sure if games will run better in vista or xp with my system.  Any help appreciated, thank you!!

Games tend to run better in XP usually unless they are made well to use DX10.
