    In short, most will work. But Vista is known to have problems with a lot of software - particularly when it addresses peripherals.

    98% will work. The problem is mostly with drivers associated with other hardware.

    Bear in mind, Vista also runs slower than XP. (though not by much). If your intent is to play games, stick with XP.
