    "Microsoft® Windows XP offers excellent overall performance—in part because it dynamically adjusts itself based upon individual use.

    This article addresses some of the dynamic tuning capabilities of Windows XP, and outlines steps you should take in order to get consistent benchmark results. It provides information on how to avoid System Restore checkpoint activity during benchmark runs."

    I realize many of the better reviewers/sites use pristine drive images and switch back to the image backup between runs of different vidcards at a fast pace so this may not have any relevance. Just curious. :)
