Vista x64 is amazing... - Page 5

Just get 64 bit. Don't consider it a "plunge". Consider it an advantage.

How bad is the incompatibilty of 64bit with 32 applications and drivers.....

I have heard numerous facts about how incompatible the 64bit version of vista is.
Vista x64 works on every single x86 program I have ran on it, even buggy EA games. I think the x86 emulator on the x64 Vista is amazing. Everything will work just fine.

By the way, you 4GB of memory won't work on x86 Vista.

I've got Vista 32 for now, and Vista 64 (I'll have to upgrade my Wireless Linksys card... no 64 support) will be on hand when I want to change over. Best of all, I got my new Vista 64 Home Premium DVD from Microsoft in less then a week!
I am currently using Linksys WMP54G v.4 PCI card on vista x64. Took some fiddling.
