Yep XP is better for gaming.

Someone told me Win98 is better than Win2K for gaming? I don't know about that.

Not sure enough about it, but if someone can confirm, that would be sweet. I'm getting tired of XP :P
Yep...turned my Server 2003 into a gaming o/s and beats XP and 2000!

I (with my limited knowlage) would suggest '98 for gaming. I think that the older OS's have more accesability to the bios and are just easier to manipulate in general. But I do agree that 2000 is not good for games. XP is okay, but sometimes (i've noticed) it tends to freak out during certain processes.

2.3ghz Intel i7 // 8gb RAM
The older computer
2.53ghz Intel e7200 // 4gb HyperX // EVGA 9800 GTX 512mb // Win7
