    I have just brought a XFX GeForce 7600 GT 256mb Graphics Card and was wondering if it will run on windows XP and also on Vista. As in the specs on some sites it only mentions Vista and i run XP. And also is this a good card . I didn't buy it from a shop otherwise i would have asked them about it. And is it easy to install ? Thanks Rob

    if the slot type is already PCIE then its good for both vista and xp..
    and the driver also tells the difference..if your vista or xp there should be the correct installer for its driver. but generally basing on your video card that is good for both xp and vista.. maybe you are just confused of their marketing strategies that promotes vista.. so that it will sell.. but keep in mind that when the are building that hardware they tested it in xp since vista maybe has not yet emerged in the market..
