What's better for Gaming? XP Home or XP Professional?

Recommended Posts

Gonna upgrade possibly (if doom 3 does indeed require XP) but not sure if i should get home or professional.. not just for doom 3 but for every other game too. Any suggestions?

XP Professional is slightly better optimized than XP home, has better security, and I believe it makes better use of computers that hyper-threading technology. I don't know many differences between the two, as I've only used XP Professional. I don't think it would make a huge difference in gaming performance, but hey, every little bit helps.

Professional.

Off the top of my head:

Boots faster
Better security options
More control over PC
Better for controlling how you want things done
Only about $60 more which you won't regret

i see no reason why the difference in gaming performance under xp pro and home would not be more or less neglible. if you don't need pro's features you'll be fine with the less expensive home.
