I have a duo-core 6700 machine that got infected badly, so I am forced to format the hard drive and reinstall the OS. I got the machine few days before Vista so I have the XP disks, but I was thinking should I go to Windows 7.
Since this is my 'flying' machine I am mostly concerned with the way FSX interacts with the OS. I have a good graphics card, I will install a Raptor HD, and the game worked fine on fairly high settings in the XP environment.
What is your experience with Windows 7 - would it help me squeeze some extra performance from the system or should I just stick to what I know works and reinstall XP?
Thank you, for your lightning fast responses...
