Yeah, right... Whenever I want to play games, I have to reboot into XP... Warhammer 40k : Dawn of War doesn't even want to boot when in Vista (only the latest patch of the latest expansion allows it, but I don't have that expansion, aaarrrrr!!!)

lol yeah, I know I should, all my friends have it in fact and are pushing me to go buy it... But still, SLi isn't supported in Vista anyway so I have to go back to XP (I kinda NEED SLi in LOTRO as it demands a lot of hardware power)

Yeah they say they do, but Vista still tells me there's not enough ressources for my peripheral (vid card) to work and that I have to disable another peripheral in order for it to work properly. But in XP it works perfect. Maybe the new beta drivers posted on the home page here will work, but right now the download doesn't want to work for me. I'll try again tonight cause right now I gotta go to Uni.
