Who else hates vista

ok so i got vista ultimate, a $400 OS. not saying how WinkWink but i got a huge discount with a secret way hehe.

I get a 5.3 base rating and i got 5.5 CPU, 5.8 on RAM, 5.9 on gfx, 5.8 on gaming gfx, and 5.3 for hdd.

WHY DO I GET SO LOW FPS IN VISTA COMPAIRED TO XP!!!!! i got a 5.8 rating on gaming. on vista i get like 20 fps in FEAR. on xp i get like 130 fps without vsync on at 1440x900 resolution. i havent tested my brand new 1900x1200 monitor yet on fear since i re install windows like 2 times a week or it seems like it.

so who can help me find out why this $400 operating system is such trash for gaming. it makes no sense at all. all i have to say is im glad i didnt dish out 400 bucks ^^
