Vista: Business 64 or Ultimate 32 Bit?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have a copy of Business 64 bit and Ultimate 32 bit. Any opinions on which one to use? 64 bit or more features?

64 bit. for the most part the extras are just media related. but most of us(maybe you) download(freeware)/buy the media software that you want/need.
also you have 4 gigs why use a os that will only allow 3.2-3.5?

Wow... Tough call. I think the Business 64 will better utilize your RAM..... That would be my choice. The bells and whistles of the Ultimate aren't that great unless you really use the media center a lot. (I kinda like the poker though.)

LOL... I agree completely.

That's a good question. I'd personally try to sell them both and either get Ultimate 64, or for better value, you can get Home Premium 64, plus have some extra money leftover for some cool new components, like a 1TB storage drive or whatever tickles your fancy. Looking at your system specs, it's not exacly my taste (I prefer Quad-Core, nVidia, and Thermalright), but you do have a great system that isn't in much need of component upgrades. I personally don't feel that the extras in Ultimate are worth the price difference over Home Premium. However, I don't think Business is as good as Ultimate. I don't really care so much for the security/encryption features. I like the entertainment features of Home Premium. But I do swear by 64-bit, it is the future. It really depends on whether you value entertainment over encryption and security.

Easy call, 64bit Business. All of the functions (well most except the massive amounts of RAM your motherboard can't address anyway) can be easily added with 3rd party applications. 64 bit vista is definitely the way to go.
