Well i jumped over Vista, but Games running slightly smoother on Windows 7 than XP on my PC.
I using Windows 7 RTM and i've tried a lot games like GTA Vice City, GTA IV, Half-Life 2, Bully Scholarship Edition, Burnout Paradise - The Ultimate Box, STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl, STALKER Clear Sky and many more.

Too bad that DOS-Games doesn't work on x64, or basiclly on Windows 7 (Vista) anymore.
The DOSBOX isn't quite easy to configure.

While the FPS is not different, Age of Empires 3 randomly has a crc-mismatch.

Every new Windows Version has better gaming support and better stuff for new games or reletiv new games, not like that games from 10 years ago work correctly.
It also was with Windows 95 -> Windows 98 -> Windows XP (most games would not run on NT and 2000, but I think that is is doubtfull, but never tryed it).

If you have a computer that is new enough it plays almost anything.
If you have an computer of 4 years ago and want to play GTA 4, you are in deep [censored].
And even new games or games with that much graphics requirements.

Windows 7 will undoubtedly be better than Vista (at least at graphics) because of WDDM 1.1 (Less memory used for useless [censored], therefore more FPS).

Vista x86 wouldn't Play my old Championship Surfer game, Win7 x86 will

On old computers Win7 Gaming experience = WinVista Gaming experience. (I did test this OSes on old computer: AMD Sempron 2200+ (1.5 ggz), 768 ram, 128 video.)
But on new computers difference is really noticeably.

Running HalfLife2 was a doddle on Win7. I switched back to XP until I can get my RAM upgrade, and now can't run it :|

During gameplay, the performance feels similar. Load times are slightly quicker, however.

unless you're playing a game that requires DX 10 or 11
XP will beat the sh*t out of both Vista and 7 in "Game Experience"

and since such games are still in minority...

agreed ecept that xp x64 edition runs MAME better than xp 32 bit. MAME has a 64 bit version.

I definitely find gaming better if I do the following:

-Ensure DirectX is up to date
-Ensure all drivers are up to date
-Disable Aero before running the game

If I do these, it definitely runs a lot better then Vista!

I don't know about Vista, but Need for Speed: Most Wanted is buggy on Windows 7. It just hangs for 5 seconds when you are trying to choose an option from the main menu. On XP NFS: MW works great, without "bugs".

Same FPS, but games didn't crash like they did in vista

No noticeable change from Vista here, though a vastly improved experience from the XP days. 4850 + Dx10 Games produces a very nice image thanks :P

Which is why my NTVDM-64 project began (with large amounts of advice and help from OCManage)..

However, on Vista and Win7 x86 there is indeed 16-bit support, and in fact on Win7 the support was even improved over Vista - Aero now works on 16-bit Win16 apps - it amazed me that somebody at MS cared. :)

Really, i had a better gaming experience in Windows 7 than in Vista/XP. I can't understand why "gamers" play on XP, DirectX 11 is great! :mrgreen:

Post subject:  Re: Windows 7 Gaming experience

because you live in illusion

there is no game that is made for DX 11 and there are few that are made
to use DX 10, everything else is DX 9 or less

Post subject:  Re: Windows 7 Gaming experience

But the difference between DX 10 and DX 9 is big. I played Resident Evil 5 on Windows XP and Windows 7, the Windows 7 one had better graphics, maybe it was just the DX 10, but wait some months, there'll be lots of games for DX 11 and now people can play decently on Windows 7 :P

I don't think that DX11 will be used correctly soon. DX10 was released 3 years ago and still gamedevs didn't unleashed full of its power.

took long time for DX 9 to mature

will take longer for DX 10/11 to mature
