Hl2 + Cs:s 64bit ? - Page 5

The 64bit adressing sure does push things forward abit. Thus why HL2 doesnt stutter as much anymore.

Hardware seems compleatly sorted now, and games seem fine mostly unless you are in love with some windows 95 ones.

If you want my full HONEST opinion then I will say that drivers for Vista are actually very good at current and only get better. With Vista 64 I have had no problems at all and I use alot of drivers and software and at current im running 150% mate. Older programs and games are working just fine also. Remember that a 64bit OS is backwards compatible to 32bit. Also for extremely OLD games and apps you can run them in different compatibility modes to get them working...but I mean they have to be pretty old. Vista has a very good software and hardware support base out of the box. I can see you having no issues really mate.

okay, i trust you guys. i've had 64-bit processors since my Pentium days, but i used to always hear awful things about XP 64-bit and compatibility issues. i'll make sure i go 64-bit when/if i go to Vista.

XP64 IMO was rather crappy. It was tarted up version of 32bit with lots of bugs. However with Vista they really went to town..its a great OS.

Acually the XP x64 OS was great, it was TONS more stable then the normal XP as it was built off server2003. The only problem was the drivers were originally very shoddy, which caused lots of BSOD and the sort, but that is all better now. ATM I still think XP x64 is better then Vista x64 (although if you're buying, Vista is a better idea because of future useablility); I've used both for awile (admittingly XP longer of course though, for obvious reasons).

Also XP64 is more secure.
