post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Is there any advantage in running a 64 bit os other than the ram aspect?

I have a copy of 64 bit xp pro. I was just wondering if it was worth the trouble to hunt down all the drivers or just stick with 32 bit.

Definitely stay away from 64 bit XP as far as you can but Vista 64 bit is a fantastic OS in my opinion and every hardware and software I have tried has worked apart from the digitally unsigned driver software.

The advantages of 64 bit? The main one is the fact that the OS detects more than 3GB of ram allowing you to take full advantage of that 2x2 set. I find these days that whilst gaming, there are times when I use 3.1-3.2GB of ram.
