I would say definitely get Vista if you want DX10, but where as you already have XP, it might be best to wait a little while.

I basically had no problems with Vista, except for Vista shutting down my video card every 5 secodns when trying to play a game.

I know run Vista with my 8800GT and everything runs fine with no problems.

I've had no troubles with vista either. It's better if you can obtain a copy.

I had ultimate installed for two weeks but most the time i couldnt even play Battlefield 2142, just kept getting errors or crashing, never got that on xp, so i thought while vista looks cool why iam on it when i cant play my games? my x-fi control panel software wouldnt work either, so i thought sod it im going back to xp, and now everything works agian its great, no more erros on 2142 and my sound card software works 100%, oh and xp is faster

If you already have XP, I would wait until the service pack comes out for Vista. Should solve all the bugs.

SP1 is a rollup update, meaning most of the fixes have already been released.
