Ok i went to cercuit city to get my computer for Chrismas. I asked for a good gaming computer. The computer cost over $600 plus monitor, printer, keyboard ext. It is windows vista and i thought it would be a greate computer for games. Well, not really. The computer has an Express chipset family graphics. I install Jointoperations and it wont run, you guesed it. The video card did not complete the game test. Most of my games i had dident work too well, except for my Steam games like Half-Life, Day of Defeat, Counter-Strike ext. NOW LISTEN TO THIS YOU WONT BELIEVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My dads computer broke so we went to walmart and got a cheap one without the monitor just the mouse and keyboard, and computer. It cost over $200!!!!! i new that computer sucked. But i was wrong. I installed Steam games and they run greate. My starcraft game runs excelent. I wanted to see if Joinoperations would work on his computer. So i Install it and it passed the game test. It runed fine. The video card on this computer is a NvidIA Geforce chipset. NOW WHAT IS UP WITH THAT! Every thing on my dads computer is excelent except the CPU speed wich is still ok.

What do u think of this?? Please reply.

Sounds like you listened to a salesman instead of researching it yourself. All he wants is the sale.

But Vista does run games. You may need to tweak it and reduce services to run them better. And try compatibility mode to run them under XP SP2 in Vista if you still have problems.
