Not much today, but many will follow. Just like when DX10 was released, not much games were out in DX10, but look at it now. :P

No contest. A brick would be better value than Vista.

Vista 64. I'm not crazy and I didn't fall and hit my head. People were so mad about Vista driver issues and useless features when it first came out that it's hard to admit the truth at the moment. Vista has already been around for a while and most of the kinks and issues are patched. So everything runs smoothly and more importantly the games work without having to spend hours trying to find some way to make them run. Which seems to be the case now for Win7 users, which you may consider your self lucky if you had no problems so far. Yet I see plenty of people have win7 issues with games to hold off on getting it. I don't care if it washes and irons your underwear but as long as there is problems with the gaming scene I'm not going to own it. I'll wait until they patch it some more and then I'll get it. Should have done so with Vista, gave me hell with F3. I was dumb enough to think "Hey, these guys with Vista are playing it, it's made for Vista so I might as well get Vista now." Epic Logic Fail. Trust me, always better to wait it out before getting the new OS, especially if you are a gamer. Just think of all the hours you'll save your self not having to troubleshoot to get a game to work. Then again if you don't know what I'm talking about then you probably don't play a whole lot of games on your PC so whatever.

i've used Vista 64-Bit for quite a while and to be honest never had a problem playing any game but the problem that i noticed was that after a while say about 2 to 3 hours Vista starts to lag..or slow down even on a power house rig like mine with all updates and installed. when i switched to Win7 64-Bit it just blew me away...fast and smooth and the gaming wasn't a problem at all. not saying Vista is bad...but Win7 is miles ahead. its said that in SLI Win7 boosts performance by as much as 17%. that's a lot.

I've had Vista x64 since release too and have enjoyed using it over XP so much I stopped using it even though I have dual OS. Games perform fine for me but benchmarks do dip with lower CPU power (minus 7% average from well-known benchmarks from using Vista than testing in XP).
Planning on a new top-end custom build in 4 or 5 months time and that will feature W7 simply because it'll have DX11, faster OS with less clunk (even though Vista is de-clunked I don't want to spend ages doing this again). A new PC deserves a brand new OS!
Only using CH trainers to add fun to games already completed or for testing mods, etc.

Still using vista on my main comp, but switching to 7 is no question, since i noticed the awesomeness of 7 on my latop.
backing up the data will be a pain in the a**.
