Well after two hours I have Vista working. It looks AWESOME in 1280×800 on my 30″ LCD. WTF. I’m not sure if it is Microsoft or NVidia who is at fault, but when you buy Vista Ultimate it should WORK. I mean it is $259 for the upgrade and it is targetted at enthusiasts and gamers. I have an NVidia 8800 GTX card in my PC. Right now this is the best card out there. It ran awesome on Windows XP SP2…. in 2560×1600. Now the highest available resolution is 1280×800.
This operating system has been in development for years and they still released it too soon.
I guess I’m going to have to reinstall XP on this computer. What fun. Like I wanted to waste five hours on this crap.
So maybe I’m part of the problem, because I like to buy the newest stuff which encourages the release of crappy products. But when I have to think about downgrading a $600 video card because Vista won’t work with it, that is just retarded. Microsoft and NVidia should be ashamed of themselves.
