no performance advantage in gaming with 64bit.. i have no reason to go to 64bit yet. only reason you would wanna go there is if you have more than 4GB RAM installed. dont want headach trying to get old games to work on 64bit.

not excactly, even if you have 4gb of ram, it is good idea to use 64bit, because if modern video cards with 1gb-1.5gb of video memory, if you have 4gb of ram installed, you end up with 3-2.5gb of ram.

64-Bit Win 7

i finally Moved from 32-bit XP so now i have some headroom for more ram in the future.

I'm using 4 GB at the moment and it's more then enough for now.

Win 7 has been the Best OS for me so far.

How many games actually support 64-bit? Crysis, Source, Ummm maybe FSX,... I don't even know.
gugle...

•Half-Life 2
•Lost Coast
•Bet On Soldier: Blood Sport
•Codename: Panzers (Phase one)
•Colin McRae Rally 2005
•Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay
•Far Cry
•Fahrenheit
•Shadow Ops: Red Mercury
•Unreal Tournament 2004
•WWII Tank Commander
•S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Shadow of Chernobyl
•Dreadnought

There has to be more I know there is.
Some site needs to take a better look with test and new games and a bunch new hardware for a more up to date look at the OSs'ss.

To my knowledge those are all 100% 32 bit except Half Life 2 that had a 64 bit version released that was apparently buggy as Hell and performed worse than the 32 bit version so it...disappeared from Steam.

They don't so much "support 64-bit" as 64 bit supports them. If it weren't for having 4+ gigs of RAM, I would not dream of running 64 bit Windows right now. I think I have a total of like 2 programs that are actually 64 bit running on it. Everything else is still 32 bit. Even in the 64 bit apps I see absolutely zero performance increase. So what is the point?
