32 bit vs. 64 bit - Page 2

post #11 of 30
Any issue I've had with x64 Vista was driver related, and all my issues have since been fixed. FPS in games sucked back in January and there was no SLi support, but these have been sorted with the latest Forceware drivers. As for programs not working, if you do have any problems it wont be anything that a quick Google search wont fix.

I have noticed that my desktop is more responsive since switching from XP Home to Vista x64 Business but I haven't sampled Vista x86. To be honest, the only real use of x64 I'm making right now is my antivirus, code compiler and Far Cry. There are further security enhancements in x64 versions of Vista that aren't present in theit x86 counter parts aswell.

oh so, x64 actually increases game performance

Why do you want to upgrade to 4gb ram? You will see a much better performance increase by upgrading to C2D. Even a cheap C2D like the e2140 is miles ahead of your P4.

Great looking system you are gonna get. I would definatly run vista 64 if you are going with 4g of ram since then youll actually be able to use it.

I am running home premium x64 right now and have not had any issues at all. Performs just as good as the 32 version I think and will be better for apps when they start getting more 64bit stuff out.

I am running a raid 10 right now and didnt have any issues installing or running the raid setup.

If you do get a program that wont run it is probably because it needs to run in XP emultion or whatever its called but I have only had to run one program in that and it wouldnt of mattered if it was 32 or 64 bit environment.

Go with 64 bit you wont be disapointed I think

c2d=core 2 duo by intel. anything by intel with a E#### where as #### is a number is there core 2 line. e4200 is the where the duel cores start at i think though. please correct me if i'm wrong. also it's the best processor on the market today aside from the intel quad cores that is
