Pretty simple little poll. What do game on 32-Bit or 64-Bit?


Side question, can you use both of your copies at the same time or does MS limit you to one or the other with one key? I've due booted with XP and vista but never different bit'ed versions of the same key.

That key is only good for one computer- so you can only use 32 or 64 bit. Cannot use the same key for both at the same time.

Well that sucks but it's what expected.

Why would you want to do both at the same time?

32bit is a bit of a dead end since some years ago when 4Gb became the norm.
Even with only 4Gb you´re still subtracting the amount of VRAM from that, in what can be addressed, and end up with 3.x Gb.

64-bit whenever it's available, so both.

EDIT: I assumed you meant the games themselves, not the OS..

64-bit only for me. First 64-bit OS for me like nutcrackr, but don't see any reason now to use 32-bit. Before Windows 7, I was 32-bit as 64-bit drivers and support weren't that great.

64bit OS has taken off a lot thanks to W7. Compatibility issues are really non-existent now, may have issues with very very very old games.

i think sc1....has some issues?...not too sure...

but drivers have been very solid releases...so...y go for 32bit? Also GPU's have started to move into the 1GB standard / 2GB mark...

I do "modern" games on my main desktop pc running XP 64.

I play old games on an ancient machine that dual boots 98SE and XP 32.
