Vista 32 bit or 64 bit

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I only use my pc for overclocking and gaming. Which is best?

I hear there alot of driver issues with the 64-bit.

If your ever gunna get 4 gigs of ram then get 64bit,
If your not then get 32bit

Good luck!

Theres some advantages.

Other wise it really doesn't increase gameplay or anything, it doesnt limit how far you can overclock or anything like that.

I am running 64 bit vista. I found every driver I needed. No big deal. Let me say 64 bit is fast, it loads as fast or faster than XP did on the same computer.

please check the forums before you post. theres already like 10+ topics about this. google search wouldn't hurt either...

gl in you decision. 64 bit os's havent given me a single problem in the 2plus years i have been using them (not even driver issues). i will never run 32 bit os again.
