    I haven't posted any games. The games that are on here I don't have. Thats is
    why I asked the question. I want to buy a new computer and have about 500
    games that are 3D XP games. I just wanted to know if anyone knows if they
    will work. Should I list a few?

    Enemy Territory: Quake Wars BETA runs without any problems (if you want
    to list it because its a beta)

    Quake 2 is missing the gun crosshairs on my PC.

    Secret Files of Tunguska (32 bit)
    Dark Fall: Lights Out (ditto)

    Am just about to install Aura 2: The Sacred Rings - will let you know. I'm
    about 1/2 way through it on my MCE 2005 PC.

    Command and Conquer 3 runs with latest Patch 1.05 without any errors or

    Maybe it would be a good idea to reply without quoting here because that
    makes the thread very very long and hardly readable.

    Transformers: The Game installs and runs without errors in 64-bit.

    ok he is telling me to check a site before posting the obvious. That to me is
    rude. My mom is looking at buying a new computer. she has downloaded all the
    games and jsut wanted to know if she would be able to play them on her new
    computer. We really are clueless about all this. I have no idea where to look
    to get this info. The only reason I posted here was because someone told me
    to. Thank you for all the input but I can not find the info I need on the
    other site. But what has been posted on this one has helped. I got my answer!

    What about Need For Speed Carbon:Collectors Edition?

    The Sims 2 (32-bit/64-bit)(All expansions pack works!) -
    don't you first have to download an update for the base game(The Sims2)

    Re: Vista Compatible Games List So Far

    Hello all, 'tis me first post here being I just got Vista x64 installed
    this weekendand I started checking out my games on the new OS. (I have
    it dual booted with Windows XP x86 & I FINALLY get to see all 4 gigs of
    memory!) I was googling Vista 64bit gaming and found this site. I'm
    checking out the list here and have some new entries to share.

    Games working for me under Vista Ultimate 64-Bit Edition:

    BloodRayne 2
    Delta Force 2
    Delta Force Land Warrior (I had graphic issues Win XP x86 but not in
    Vista x64) :cool:
    Elder Scrolls III - Morrowind
    Fighter Squadron SDOE (patched to 1606)
    FreeSpace 2 SCP 3.6.9 (open-source)
    Heavy Metal - FAKK2
    Magic The Gathering (HOTU version)
    Space Rangers 2
    Star Trek Elite Force
    Star Trek Elite Force II
    Tachyon: The Fringe
    Unreal II

    Of course I have newer games too but most of those you guys already

    ASUS A8N32 SLI Deluxe Motherboard (dual x16 PCI-E slots in SLI)
    AMD Opteron 185 2.6GHz Dual Core (OC @ 2.86ghz) w/Zalman 9700 Copper
    4GB Kingston HyperX PC-3200 DDR RAM (dual channel 2-3-2-6 timings @
    Dual eVGA Nvidia 7800GTs in SLI (256mb mem, factory OC @ 470mhz
    gpu/1100mhz mem each)
    Dual 300GB Seagate SATA II Drives
    Dual 400GB Western Digital SATA II Drives
    Dual Lite-On DVD Drives
    OCZ 600w SLI PSU
    Antec Nine Hundred Case
    Dell 2007WFP Widescreen Flat Panel
    Logitech X530 5.1 Surround Sound Speakers
    Creative Stereo Desktop Speakers (for 7.1 Surround Sound)

    This system rates a Windows Experience Index Base Score of 5.3 (out of
    a current max score of 5.9, I'd say that's pretty good) :)

    Soon I'll have to see how SETI runs on it ;)

    Does anyone know if Tabula Rasa is working in x64 Home Premium?

    My specs are in the signature and here is my Windows Experience Rating:

    *Acer Extensa 5620 Notebook
    *Windows Vista Home Premium x64
    *15.4 WXGA (1280x800*320GB Hard Disk
    *Intel Core 2 Duo 5750 @ 2.0 GHz
    *ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400XT
    *4GB DDR2 667 SDRAM

    You can add *Manhunt* to that list too.

    Disable "Data Execution Prevention (DEP)" or you won't be able to
    install it on Vista x64.

    You can add Company of Heroes Opposing fronts to the list. I have played
    it the last 8 months with no issues. On Vista Home Premium 64bit with
    ATI radeon 3870 vid card. Has anyone manged to dfind a Patch or work
    around to be able to play Pandoras Box at all? You would trhink
    Microsoft would have released a patch given it was a hugely popular game
    of theirs.

    WOW i love you xD
    Link for halo
    Now all we need is the way to get the games that work with the 64bit
    version !! xD
