windows xp pro x64 question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hi,
I installed windows xp x64. everything works fine. found all x64 drivers.
one thing I don't get, shouldn't I be able to go to my nvdia settings or windows display mode to change from 32 bit display to 64 bit?
can anyone help me here. well all I see is that it still has 32bit as highest. so how do I change that.
thx

No, the display has nothing to do with it. 32 bit is how many colors there are on the screen when it comes to the display settings, or something like that. x64 is a whole different Operating system / hardware thing.

Correct.

32-bit display is just the number of possible colors.

64-bit is the number of bits the OS and hardware can process. They have absolutely no relation to each other except that they are binary.

ok so that's what it is. will there be a better fps with this x64 XP? I haven't tried to 3D test it and haven't tried with any games.
