i have a question about 64bit

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey,

I'll make this short and sweet: Does installing a 64BIT OS(Vista 64) have a huge impact on gaming, or overall performance? I'm thinking about installing it tonite..need your input. I currently have vista 32 bit.
I'm primarily interested in the effect that it has on gaming.


Thanks,

Nathan

I am running XP PRO x64 and I have not found any problems running games. I'm not sure about Vista.

tbh i have 64bit, and between another machine that is same type of power i have played on, not much difference, but i might not just have noticed, only difference i have spotted really is the annoying "this version of software does not yet support the x64 architecture lol"

I think he means improvement in gaming. However I never was on 32bit Vista but I think there are some gains to be had with 64bit but nothing to write home about so I would say stay with 32bit for now unless you got 4GB o Ram

I have had no issues with games so far, and I find it is better since I can use all 4gb's of RAM.

Yep it does use more ram because if you look in your task manager you might see dulpicates of some processes this is because of there being a 32 bit process and a 64 bit one.

You onyl have 2gb of ram so it would not be worth it for gaming.
Also allthough 64bit drivers for hardware are alot better than they used to be they are not as stable or reliable as 32 bit counter parts
