Im a gamer, so where will i be better off... in win xp professional or win2k pro? what OS offers better performance, compatibility?

the worst failure is not trying........so go ahead and TRY to overclock your cpu to 5ghz

I cant answer your question.
But i can tell you that i use Win 2k for everything, and have yet to find a single problem. Warcraft 3, Jedi outcast, even my old favorite Star Trek : BOTF from years ago works wonderfully.

In older games, WindowsSE should give u best performance.. however new games should be fine. If ur a gamer, I'd recommend XP...any casual reason why u wouldn't want to use XP tho?
