" @SL33TBL1ND: I am not saying that your graphics card is not compatible with Windows 7, I begin to wonder how much you really do know about hardware. Just the fact that it works with Windows 7 doesn't mean it is a DirectX 11 video card. Allow me to explain: I am not arguing that your graphics card cannot function with Windows 7, I am saying that your card is not DirectX 11 compatible, which means that it cannot benefit form the improvements DirectX 11 brings you. To benefit form DirectX 11 you must also have Windows 7, all I am saying is that, since your graphics card is not DirectX 11 ready, might as well keep Vista. But if you dislike Vista, sure go ahead. Yes, this setup is beautiful, that's unarguable, but the non-DX11 graphics card is a killer. "Snail mate, before you fall sideways off that high horse be aware that Nvidia was the first graphics vendor to supply Windows 7 WDM 1.1 driver support for their cards. Up until ATI released a version the Catalyst 9.1 drivers which included WDM 1.1 support, ATI's hardware was infact not fully Windows 7 compatible as their pre WDM 1.1 drivers installed and ran as Vista drivers.
