Will 64bit improve gaming performance?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Currently running Windows vista 32bit home premium and DX10. Just wondering if windows 7 64bit would increase my FPS in DX10 games? What's the NOTICEABLE difference i will see going to 64bit? All I do is game and surf the web and not going to upgrade for $100 if gaming isn't much of an improvement

Just for gaming it's not really worth it anymore since they have fixed the major issues with Vista and 32 to 64 bit is 0 difference in performance, the only way it would really help you use windows 7 using less resources but at the same time I doubt you will see a worthwhile performance gain.

It really depends. The only reason you need the X64 OS is to run 4gb + ram. Thats all. Ive had more issues in 64 bit than 32 bit. So it really depends.

Depends on the game. More specifically, if it has 64bit support.

But anyways you should receive better performance due to the fact that your system will handle memory more efficiently.
