Far Cry 3 Delayed

Ubisoft announces a delay for Far Cry 3, saying the first-person shooter sequel is now due for PCs and consoles on November 29th in EMEA territories and on December 4th in the U.S. "We're taking more time to create the best possible gameplay experience," said Dan Hay, producer at Ubisoft. "Far Cry 3 is a huge offering and we want every element of this insane, action-packed adventure to be of the highest possible quality for the players." Prior to this setback, the game was expected in September.

And you sound like a complete moron when you disregard XP. Newsflash genius - it's STILL the best system for gaming on. 11 processes, 140m pf usage. I'll bet your Vista/7 system has a minimum of 30 processes running on bootup, most of which you don't even know what they do, all of which you had no hand in optimizing.

Grow up butthurt boy, don't get all defensive about your lack of dissecting facts - it only makes you look more stupid.
Here's some facts. Yes you can still eek out a few percentage points more in a few areas in XP with gaming. But nowadays, CPU's are mostly overpowered for even gaming (majority of games are GPU bound, not CPU) and RAM is so cheap, 8gb is less than $40, so the extra memory and CPU used by vista/7 is of no consequence in most modern systems. Simply get a nice powerful GPU and it will make far more of a difference than XP vs vista/7.
Also, you need vista/7 to use dx 10/11. When next gen consoles finally arrive, even if they are obsolete at start, they will finally push a larger drive into dx 10/11, whereas right now, there are STILL recent ports that use dx 9 only.

While I'm at it, I'll knock a couple other "myths" out, or at least explain why they are meaningless.

Like using a 1366 pin i7 system for the triple memory channels vs double memory channel. At BEST it added like 2 percentage points to overall performance, something which is unnoticeable and (and in that case added a large amount of cost to the overall system, cost which would have been better spent getting a faster video card.)

Or using green hard drives. Modern green harddrives vastly outpace things like older generation velociraptors, simply because of vastly increased platter density. Lots of people like to go ZOMG GREEN DRIVES SUX0R when really, modern latest gen ones are quite fast, and not terribly far off of non-green drives.
