Gaming results in win2003 are a bit less. I've tweaked win2K3 using that online guide (how to use win2K3 as a workstation), but the results were a bit disappointing when comparing to a winXP, or that's what I've found.

Issues with drivers may have been resolved recently, but e.g. : ati drivers wouldn't even install with the setup, you had to install them manually.

Stick with XP, it's a workstation OS after all, Win2003 was not designed to run games and has other priorities set afaik

there is only a very small performance inpact in some games from going to SP2; however the amount of bugfixes included make up for it
