then why dont you just try xp on that rig and see if it sorts it out? if it does, just keep vista around until you need it like if you plan to play halo2 or something

Listen to my music! and random/funny videos XD

Yar. You're likely having issues with Vista Drivers and DX10.

DX10 basically did the same thing to me with FFXI, I would get flickers, and I would get massive framerate lags from random things. Going back to XP and DX9 solved this problem.

System: Athlon 64 X2 3800+
EVGA Geforce 8600 GTS 256mb PCIE
ECS (pile of crap) Mobo
1.5 GB Corsair PC3200
Soundblaster Audigy Pro
Windows XP Pro, Lemming Optimized.

well, this seems to work, Looks like the SPECIAL version of vista just isnt ready for people that wanna use their systems to their full potential, I probably should go with linux, but oh well...
