Sorry I meant apart from any driver issues there could be.
well anyway, make the right decision go for 64-bit... and if microsoft sticks to there road map your going to be happy you did

I know that 64bit is moving forward alot more with Vista than it did with XP but does MS have a particular roadmap going on then ?, I may have missed something.

Windows NT 7 will be 64bit only.

I heard that that some versions of Vista support different RAM amounts. Infact I thought 64bit supported up to 128GB ?
who in the HE L L needs that much ram?? is that for when your at work and think of playing unreal, and your computer ram reads your mind and starts playing for you???

Just a couple of points from me.

First of all, let's begin on the increased Memory addressing within the x86-64 specification.

Micro-Processors of this age (IA-32 specification) are built upon a 36bit Physical Address, therefore permitting the system to address up to 64GB of Physical Memory.

However, 32bit Virtual Addressing is used. This therefore denies the system access to Memory larger than 4096MB (per application).

x86-64 improves upon this by slightly increasing the Virtual Addressing size (through a combination of system rewrites and emulation), therefore allowing an increased Memory Addressing capacity.

.................................................. .........................

Please Note: x86-64 Micro-Processors are not 64bit processors, as they do not conform to the IA-64 specification (or equivalent). Instead they "translate" the calls into 32 bit calls to be processed, with a performance penalty of course. For those of you who do not fully understand this it could be compared (to a degree) with what the Creative Alchemy application does.

Additional Note:

Security: Currently x86-64 security is much greater within an x86-64 operating system, however if hackers decide to attack the x86-64 market they will find it much easier to gain control over the operating system.

With IA-32[E] the system ran on its primary design, with x86-64 one of the crucial parts of the system is the EM64T instruction set (or equivalent). However, it is much easier to hack into, and control, an instruction set that is not a primary part of the system design than hack into the Micro-processor system itself. Instructions like SSE are not as vulnerable as they use the primary system to operate (unless under x86-64 mode). Please be aware of this high rated threat in the future.

The Kernel security system in Vista is a nice additional, however it will not be impregnable for much longer, as soon as they use a rotating modulation for the encryption system then I will be satisfied

Currently x86-64 is not a bad choice, however, for the future I would consider waiting for IA-64 Micro-Processors, the choice is yours.

i have both x86 vista and x64 vista.

x86 vista, is pretty fast. no lies about it.

i also installed x64 vista because i wanted to see the difference. now while x86 vista ALMOST doesn't have problems with everything i run, x64 seems to have a lot of problems for me. All the games that i play work on x64 vista, and lol thats not much i only play cs-source and star craft. haha

but x64 vista, seems slower to me when i use it. xp out runs x64 vista for just running the OS. now im running it on my below sig rig with 4 gb of ram. vista x64 will not work with my audicity, adobe priemere elements, and my nero 7. + alot of other random small applications.

i have all drivers for the x64 version of vista, as for my board is vista certified. but x64 seems to me to be too much of a hassle right now. in my theory i think people should wait, until x64 becomes more of the norm. right now not everything runs on x64. the industry is slowly moving toward it. but x64 does have its advantages, its easy to tell that it can process more data at the same time, and you can run and open up more multiple programs and windows. but i always think " will this work on my x64 os."

is 64 bit really faster than 32? would you see fps boosts from running 64 bit?
