Well i've been thinking for a while that it may be time to have a play around with 64BIT and if I like it then I will stay with it.

Now I have checked my drivers and they all have stable 64bit counterparts so that shouldn't be a problem.

Now apart from the obvious driver issues some people can have is there anything else I should seriously consider before installing ?

Now ive used Vista 32bit now for rather a while and lets face it Vista is ALOT faster than XP. So with 64Bit will I see a faster OS response time ? I would assume in some instances I will...however thats me assuming.

Cheers.

Well you can get up to 16gb of ram

I've heard that some games have bugs running on the 64bit version.

However I don't think its too much of an issue

If you had a poll (WINK WINK ) I would vote yes

Ok well Poll added lol.

I heard that that some versions of Vista support different RAM amounts. Infact I thought 64bit supported up to 128GB ?

Ultimate does. AFAIK the enterprise variant shoudl too. (no pun intended.... ok, well, slightly )
anyway, why go from 32 to 64 if you can just dual boot, or isnt that an option? your 40GB should hold them both if partitioned.

I ran vista with 1.5Gb of System memory. I installed Quake 4 than run it, I got around 35 frames than I installed 1.4.2 patch and got around 37 frames. It was very dam choppy compared to XP I tried every Nvidia Driver out there for vista and I found that 158.22 was the best but all the games where still choppy

Right now in XP I'm getting 60 frame's caped all the time when I play Quake 4

64 bit Vista is more stable and more secure than its 32bit counterparts.

64 bit Vista has a randomized kernel, making it impossible to maliciously gain access to the kernel.

I did a lot of reading about it when I made the decision to go x64. Everything works wonderful, no issues at all.

Well I would dual boot however im running XP on my other drive. Im not all that bothered if I hit a snag really as ill just go back to 32Bit...I have XP to fall back on if I must.

Thanks.
