thats not right,

by default vista will use all core, only use that option if you want to use less cores. This is limits how many cores that are used for vista during and after boot.

1) Yes, most definitely. The only app I've ever had issues with was CoreTemp (which sucks anyways) because of no driver signing. I have over 10 games installed (going back as far as BF1942) and they all run greaet.
2) Yes, the kernal is larger so there is a slightly larger overhead, but you benefit from being able to utilize more memory and theoretically better CPU usage (due to x64)

the only thing i don't like about vista is UAC, which i have disabled. also, not a lot of good antivirus is out for 64 bit yet. yes norton, kaspersky, AVG, f-secure, etc are 64, but they are memory hogs and uses a lot of cpu juice. also, a lot of viruses right now are aimed to disable these antivirus programs as first priority. f-secure is pretty light weight but they don't update their virus database enough. i use NOD32 on xp 32 and i love it. its extremely lightweight and it updates its virus database 2x a week or so. i believe there is a 64bit out for NOD32 but i only heard it as a rumur.

althought vista ultimate takes like 1gb of memory, vista is willing to sacrifice memory to allow other applications to run better. 64 bit applications will run about 30% faster than 32bit depending on how well the application supports 64bit.

vista drivers arent perfected yet but its has almost identical performance as xp. you probably only see a 100 mark difference between drivers on 3Dmark06. when im using vista, i find that sometimes i get a BSOD while gaming once a week or twice a week. on the other hand, i hanve't gotten a BSOD in xp for 2 years.
Just go buy a decent router ($50-100) and that's all you need......no need for anti-virus/anti spyware. Windows Defender scans my PC every other night, and gets updated almost every day.
I loaded spybot search and destroy the other day just to test, and I couldn't find a single piece of spyware. There was one cookie it found for doubleclick, but that's there no matter what you do (LOL)
Vista is WAY more secure than XP........possibly due to design, but may be due to the fact that malicious coders haven't developed much for it yet.

Just remember, don't believe the PC security software hype. It's a bunch of BS. Everyone on this forum is perfectly capable of not clicking on any emails that might contain a virus (or pop up ads if you get them, I don't).
A router and a sense of logic will always be better than the hassle of antivirus/software firewalls. They get in the way of online gaming, and just add one more layer of troubleshooting if a game doesn't work right.
I haven't run anti-virus in 6 years and I've never had a virus in that time. I install Avast every so often just to check though......every time I do I've wasted my time!

Example is the RAM; on 32-bit OSes, you can only have up to a little more than 3GB be used due to some kind of limit, but in 64-bit Vista (or XP, but who cares about that version), you can have up to...what was it, 36GB of RAM?
x64 architecture in general is able to address 2^(64) bytes of memory, but you're limited by Vista with:
Quote:
* 32-bit versions of Windows Vista Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, Enterprise, and Ultimate: 4GB
* 32-bit Windows Vista Starter: 1GB
* 64-bit versions of Windows Vista Home Basic: 8GB
* 64-bit versions of Windows Vista Home Premium: 16GB
* 64-bit versions of Windows Vista Business, Enterprise, and Ultimate: 128GB
Even before these numbers you will be most likely limited by your chipset. I think mine is limited to 16Gb......and that's only with a recent BIOS flash.

As far as sound drivers for Creative goes, the ONLY issue that I've encountered as of late is the issue with VOIP cutting out in BF2142.....however I think this issue exists in XP too. I've had the X-Fi Xtremegamer normal and Fatality edition, as well as my current card, and the drivers work great.
I run kernal streaming in Foobar with all of my FFDshow configured for 24 bit in movies, and it sounds great.

BTW I would like to also add that VOIP works fine in other games.....just BF2/2142. I've seen this in a changelog for Auzentech, so I guess they're aware of it.

It works! Actually i didn't know about this until i read this thread and tried it immediately and it works, vista is booting up much faster. You actually have to press the boot tab and then the advanced options tab then you checkmark the number of processors tab and select the number of cores, I could only select 2 as I have a dual core cpu, but i'm guessing there should be the option for 4 if you have quad core. Now, my observations, that little bar that goes across when booting, before this it was 3 1/4 now it's 2 3/4. So it definitely made a difference. You also feel the difference after the startup screen as appz load much faster.

It does work, I've tested it before. However I used to set it to 2 cores when I had an E6600, and I when I got my quad I forgot to change it back.....I couldn't figure out why I only had two cores! LOL
