    I want to downgrade from vista to Xp as it is garbage and my games are slow. Would it be worth it, will I see an improved change in pes 2008? or would I be wasting my time?

    my spec is: Intel Celeron 3.08ghz, 1gb ram, Geforce 5200FX.

    any help would be muchly appreciated!

    i have problems in the menu where you select which team you want to be and on the edit mode menu. I posted a thread but no-one replied, it seems to go really slow. the other menus and game runs fine, just them menus.

    it says I have the recommended requirements on the back of the game, so I dont understand why not. I dont mind playing on low settings. once a decent patch comes out then hopefully it will look a bit better!

    you cheeky git! vista itself is fine, only pes seems a bit crap, but only a couple of the menus as mentioned. all the other menus work fine...i just wondered whether it was to do with vista. Fifa 08 works good, even on high detail but just pes seems bad.

    XP is better for games. However Vista has better design, sound quality (playing and recording), improved LAN (wich means better internet connection), etc etc

    For me Vista is much better than XP, no chance. The problem is gaming... I only play PES 2008, and I had to downgrade to Win XP so I can play it with better frame rate.

    how did you downgrade? did you format your hard disk then, use the xp cd to run it?

    You can create another partition using Vista's integrated tools and then install XP and PES on that. For the record, most Vista editions DO require pretty much double the RAM that XP does to play games decently. The only exception is the version you have to pay stupid money for - go figure.

    I have it on both partitions and it runs fantastic in XP and it's almost unplayable in Vista. I'm talking a framerate drop of 60fps smooth in XP down to 15fps in Vista. Thanks, Micro$haft.

    EDIT: That was on a Athlon X2 4200, Geforce 7600GT, 2GB RAM.
