Selling my X-FI because I got a ticket and it's something I am willing to sacrifice. Also my main OS is Win Xp x64 and they haven't released drivers for it yet. Do you want it?

...
And can't you unlock the 6800GS AGP to 16 pipes?

because I got it for free. I use win2k as well..but XP is noticeably faster.

And I wasn't very impressed with Vista. In fact it runs a tad sluggish on my setup. My computer isn't exactly top of the line, but it's by no means slow.

Finding vista drivers is even harder...although I managed to get everything working except the printer, X-FI, and Webcam.

You dont have Vista unless its a Beat version which means it sucks. Id say, keep the X-FI if you can and just use XP its better than XPx64 and Vista Betas right now.

I don't have a copy of XP.

And yeah the Vista is the Beta 2. It sucks.

...and I wish I could keep my X-FI but I need the money.
