yea windows 7 is way better than vista. rock solid and not so picky about hardware. both of my neaghbors are running win 7 one on an intell celeron and the other on a athlonXP 2800+ (thats a socket A processor)all it needs is a 2 gig processor or close to it and a gig of ram (2 gig is better)a good video card helps too but most onboard video arrays will run iti have put quake on the socket A computer and all looks good but it crashes occasionally. i think i need to give it more ram

I can attest, I've played with Windows 7 and if you have a similar set like me (Sony Vaio 2.8ghz P4, 2GB RAM, Radeon X1650 Pro Card) you should be ok on Win 7 and gaming. I noticed very little difference in framerate drop with most games, than when I installed Vista the first time *that was brutal*. Even games like Left 4 Dead and TF2 didn't suffer much on Win7. Plus it's Quake, so I don't think there will be a problem there for you.
