    This one really pissed me off. WTF do they expect us to do, upgrade AGAIN?! I wish I hadn't bought my 8800GTX now! =@

    I'm going to hold on to XP as long as I can. I refuse to purchase another vid card after dumping 6 bills for my XFX 8800 GTX just for minimal improvements and a Vista installation. I've had my Vista disk since January but never loaded it awaiting SP1. Now that SP1 will crash my card, guess it's time to toast it in the microwave. (Didn't pay for it so don't have to worry about a loss). This really aggravates me since us loyal tech heads are always dumping a mint into our rigs every 6 months or so, but I believe it is time for me (at least) to sit this one out and see WTF happens in the industry. Things haven't gone as expected for Microsoft with their Vista OS, now I want to see just how things go after the release of this information to the public. Quite a few of us dumped a ton of change into our pc's from December to the present expressly for DX10 gaming, and now it's a bust.
