Default will my drivers work with vista

I'm currently in the market for a new computer. And I fell into the decision between getting vista for my new setup or fall back to XP. I was wounder if there was a way to see if the drivers for my new hardware i am using will work with vista? . Or any other programs maybe a usefull site or something?

Vista like xp i believe has a compatibility list, check with this first. You can probably find it on microsofts site, just search for vistas HCL (harware compatibilty list) . I have personally not tried vista, but i heard it sux, mainly because it doesnt have drivers for stuff that xp has drivers for. Plus it is suppose to be really dumbed down for people who dont know how to use computers. I know a lot of people with it and the techies hate it and the computer illiterate love it, so just catorgorize yourself and choose.

Windows Vista: Upgrade Advisor

This will tell you what version of Vista is right for you and what hardware/software you have installed that will give you problems.
