    about to move to Windows XP (is it good for games, or better than W2000)?

    I got W98SE, have tried W2000PRO, and it sucks big time for games, several incompatibilities. now I plan to move to Windows XP home edition, is it fast enought for games? and overall processes?

    I got, K6-2 450mhz, 256mb RAM Pc100, 6,4gb (w98se), and 40gb (windows xp).
    does it worth it?

    I run XP and games work just fine...however you will need more ram than what you have. Lots more.

    Not true! I have two machines, one with 256MB of Ram and a 1GHz chip and one with a 366 and 128mb and both run XP. Both game pretty well for the most part, and seem to have little trouble with any game I have tried. Still I didnt find that many games wouldnt play in 2k, and the ones that didnt at first are often patched soon after release.

    256 is ok, but for best performance i'd suggest 512MB
    games are a bit better than 2k, but still trails 98SE
