xp 32 or 64

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've had vista for about 5 months and i love it but battlefield 2 lags so im considering switching to back to xp until my next build but i was also thinking should i get xp pro 64 bit??? can my computer run it fine (no lagg in battlefield2)
and does 64 bit give in FPS boosts or any increase in performance over 32 bit?

Ugh.

64 XP is horrible. Not horrible as in an OS, but drivers are very badly lacking.

Go back to 32bit XP.

I don't know, I've had zero problems with XP x64. But I don't have a lot of devices either.

Video card - obvious 64bit support
Sound card - fake 64 bit drivers but still work
Chipset - Obvious again
And those are all my devices. Maybe x64 would suck for someone with a lot of peripherals. I like x64 because it starts up crazy fast and it's a little more responsive within the OS itself (not programs - they are the same).

32-Bit -for the time being- tend to be the safer choice. Go for 64 only is you need to utilize Hugh amount of RAM & you know that the specific Application is based -natively- on 64-bit architecture.
