why is vista/s7ven x86 not as good as x64?

it doesn´t affect DX10 or does it ?
or is it that Quad adn dual cpu´s perform better under 64BIt

Why download a new version ?

Doesn't windows update patch older versions ?

nekrosoft13, there isn't much different in this build. Not anything that would be worth switching from x64 back to x86. In fact, the only thing I've noticed so far are a few GUI tweaks. Also, UAC now pompts you when disabling it. In build 7048 you could just set it at its lowest setting without confirming. Honestly, I just installed this on my laptop and an older workstation to test the new build. Nothing to write home about. Hopefully the official RC will bring some more changes. Also, ASUSEN7900GTX, there will not be 2 Release Candidates. There will only be one -- just like there was only one beta release. Again, this build is just a branch of the RC1 builds, not the official.

The major difference people focus on between x86 and x64 is the amount of memory the Operating System can utilize. 32-bit can use just about 4gb including VRAM. 64-bit can utilize much more, thus making it worthwhile if you have 4gb of system memory plus a graphics card with its own dedicated VRAM.

That is correct, but just as beta 1 build 7000 was available before its public release, people are expecting that RC1 will be the same. However, as I previously posted, this is believed not to be the official RC1 build. It is from the RC branch which includes the EULA from RC1. I would guess that in RC1 we'll see the final UI, just as we did with Vista RC.

Gonna try the 7057 x64 version as I've run into a couple of bugs with the current 7000 build.
