Depends on the games you are playing.
As far as I know Windows XP is limited to DirectX 9, and a lot of the newer games use DX 10 or 11.

I used XP up until recently myself, then switched to Windows 7.
Honestly, its not a hard move to make.

Please read through the thread thoroughly before responding.
