I'm considering getting VISTA ULTIMATE x32 for my BootCamp partition. I'm using BootCamp primarily for some gaming and to run PPStream (usually I run the latter through VMWare though). So far I've had XP Pro SP3 installed on my BootCamp partition and it's been alright - couldn't say it was great tho. For example, each time before it booted into the desktop I'd hear this crackling-like sound. A couple of times when I played Dead Space there was suddenly no sound. When I exited the game the sound worked again. Another issue I noticed was when I tried to use Sound Recorder - each time when I tried to save a sound file the program would pop out a msg saying that not enough memory was available to save the file (or something like that). Yeah, no memory with 4 GB RAM? (Ok XP only reads 3, but still...) Also, I didn't have a feeling that XP was running that smoothly on my MBP in general - seemed a bit laggy at times (for my MBP specs refer to my siggy). (Also, for your info: I did a full NTFS format when installing XP.) Besides, I'm pretty sick of the OLD, crappy looking XP, that's why I'm considering getting "shinier" Vista instead. I could be getting Windows 7, but I guess I'll rather go with Vista since now 2 or already 3 service packs have been released for it. Yes I know XP is tested and supposedly stable and all that but I didn't get the feeling it was all that great and reliable, and besides I'm tired of its looks anyway. Now will VISTA ULTIMATE x32 be good for gaming and overall use now that these SPs have been released? What's the verdict? (I know some people are claiming x64 would be better for gaming, but is it really worthy on a MBP like mine??) Btw, how much HD space should I dedicate for the Vista partition? I've had 35 GB for XP, will that be enough for Vista if I plan to have about one or two games installed at a time?
