Hot as Hell here in little Denmark, so why not make use of the good weather and move to 64bit :p
So what is the driver status ? Im thinking most on my new 7800GTX and my Soundblaster Audigy :o

Driver availablility is fairly good, though lacking in some areas. Printer and scanner drivers are biggest problem, also old and rare internal or external devices can be problematic when it comes to drivers. Creative has good availability of x64 drivers so your audigy should work. If you have internal or usb adsl (or similiar) modem, you might not find drivers. nforce drivers are at beta atm, but 5.65 (I think) that I'm using are stable and works well. not many security applications (firewall and AV) are avail for x64, but there are some, enough to make your install secure.
