Vista Business 64-bit

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi ppl...

I've brought an Asus A8Js and it cames with Windows XP Pro... It gives also an upgrade to Vista, and I can choose between the Vista Business 32-bit or 64-bit version...

Which one should choose?? And, does the 64-bit version runs the 32-bit aplications??

The 64-bit has anything better?? Or I will have incompatibilities in games and stuff??

Please answer...

Thanks in advance

The 64bit version should run most 32bit applications but the problem seems to be drivers for all your Peripherals ie joysticks etc. 64bit is the way to go but I'm not sure now is the time, if I was you I wouldn't upgrade to vista for at least 6months as you will see no benifits compared to XP, if anything it will be alot slower than XP.
