I plan on gaming with WoW and other games that are NOT limited to install, and limit to computers. I am still dual booting to Vista until Windows 7 becomes retail. I really don't want to lose a installation "point" on my pc.
left4dead so far... i had other games installed before i installed windows 7.... im just going to reinstall windows 7 once i get windows home server up and running the way i want..
then i can post back all the games....but on my games list is...
rainbow dix vegas 2
COD 5 - i still call it COD
unreal tournatment 2004
quake iii arena - alltime fav
Been using Window 7 since the early beta versions and now running RC1.
Honestly its about as good as Vista in terms of compatability, that is to say generally very good. The only thing that doesn't work so far is certain versions of punkbuster for various games, another reason to get rid of that nasty piece of software.
I've only installed Steam and the games I play through it (mostly TF2 and L4D lately) and while the performance is basically the same over Vista, I seemingly get some stutters here and there which I didn't get before.
I receive the error "Unknown Windows API Function " after several minutes of online Call of Duty 4 multiplayer play. From what I have gathered, PunkBuster is unwillingly to support unfinished operating systems - in this case Windows 7 RC.
I have been running Crysis Wars on the other hand with no issues.
Beyond the PB related error with CoD 4, both games are performing better under Windows 7 64 bit compared to Windows Vista 64 bit.
No problems with actual games. Some minor problems with GameSpy Arcade.
World of Warcraft
Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
Performance is good as is stability, I am overclocked to 2.9ghz on my 2.4ghz AMD 4600+.
never going back to vista, not that it was bad, but a few patches and tweaks and it was fine
hadnt had to really do anything to win7 to get it running really nice, the extra 2gb ram i gave it does make it alot nicer tho
do wish i could have classic start menu though.... lol my only issue with win7
If it wasn't for bloody punkbuster I'd be gaming on Windows 7. Most games I've tried worked well, but the only one I'm playing atm is COD4 which requires punkbuster to work, but alas, no luck, just pumps out errors.
Punkbuster need to get on the boat and actually support windows 7, given many enthusiasts are using it already, and indeed a few people I know who aren't enthusiasts are giving it a crack anyway.
