Games will be supported by XP for quite a while i imagine
If you were going to get a gaming machine for today and the future... which OS would you pick?
I've been someone out of PC gaming for a while now, preferring to play older games on a Netbook that has served me well. However, it just isn't powerful enough to play some of the games that I'd like to play, such as the sequals to the X franchise and so I'm looking at picking up a new PC in the future with gaming in mind. And not just older titles, I'd like it to be powerful enough to run any game today.
This is largely a hardware issue, granted, but the OS itself will come into it. Is windows XP still supported on new games releases? A quick web search on Dungeon Siege 3 shows that game supports it (I'm fond of the original Dungeon Siege and still have that). Or do other forum members swear by Windows 7?

XP is a decade old and is on life supprt… XP can't even utilize modern hardware as efficient as Vista for that matter…

Or you could be smart about it and buy WINDOWS 7 PRO which comes with XP MODE which essentially is a free copy of XP inside a virtual machine.
P.S: To the guy above, XP in no way shape or form is faster than 7 ive done the testing and its not even close.
