Very bad experience with Vista. Hardware:
QX6850 OC (3.3GHz)
4GB 800MHz DDR2
nVidia 260GTX OC (need timings? I doubt it'd be relevant)
320GB 7200rpm hdd

Tried Vista Ultimate x64. It snailed like the slowest snail I ever witnessed - and then we're not even talking about The Annoyance (bad enough to deserve capital letters)
Now running XP Pro x64 like a charm. There aren't even any driver problems.

IMO Vista has no excuse to run bad on that hardware (it runs Crysis better than Vista, ha!)
