Firstoff, welcome to OCN! I am running x64 as well and can tell you you made a good decision. As for tips, make sure that ALL your hardware has drivers for Vista x64. I had to go through 3 wireless internet adapters and another tv tuner to get them all working. Next, be prepared to reinstall drivers periodically; I sometimes have trouble with my keyboard and printer drivers- vista just hasn't worked all the kinks out yet. Good luck and good gaming!
