    I am sorry I don't have detailed information, but might be able to quantify it - He did have some firm grounds for his findings, and may still have some detail - however feel free to snipe away to your hearts content, and enjoy your Vista.

    Im not sniping fella. Its just that the numbers you quoted for your mate cannot hold any truth.

    IF its a Vista problem then its something your mate is doing wrong wiht his set up. Even with that in mind, the chances (even if he could measure it), that its a 20-25% speed difference is highly unlikely.
