Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7100
 
 

I see some improvments over some games, however others that have ran in XP fail to run in 7, other times the game randomly crashes. I have noticed hitman 2 silent assasin has stopped crashing every 1 level, a problem i had in vista, but ya it is better for gaming if u kno how to properly set up the games first

Windows 7 x64 (Ultimate)
 
 

I only game in Single Player Campaign but I sure can notice a huge increase in everything I have played on 7 ultimate x64 that I had also played in Vista Ultimate x64. + 10 on what some of you guys are saying about the footprint and resource hog that is Vista.

This is all "Seat of the Pants" benchmarks but my butt is pretty good at it since I usually don't do benchmark apps (to complex for me really).

I have played the following games w/o a single glitch and w/o tweaking 7 (or vista) one bit... I am not a guru so tweaking is not part of my daily routines

Sometimes, I have gone through them a couple or few times, others, I have left at the half way mark cos I couldn't endure the repetitiveness anymore but that's not really here nor there


Far Cry 2 .....

CoD 4

CoD 5

Half Life 2 + Ep 1 + Ep 2 ..... No need to run in Comp Mode at all.

Vegas 2

GRAW 2

Fallout 3 ..... Couldn't get out of the Bunker, to tedious for me.

Crysis ...... I'll be trying the x64 next, didn't do it the first time out.

Warhead


Vista = noticed some hesitation in fps at some intermittent times, speeds were fast, graphics awesome.

Win 7 = No hesitations what so ever, slightly faster speed increments as well, awesome graphics, perhaps crispier and more solid all around.

Could not be happier with the OS, I don't use the Eye candy side of it at all (Media Center) so I can testify if this is better than Vista but, when it comes to games... the difference is like Night & Day

Two Thumbs up

Playing games on windows 7 is better than on Vista and you get more fps, BUT worse than playing them on Xp. I noticed this fact in my pc. I get way lower fps and system is generally slower than with xp.
