You mean the Ultimate Retail package? Yes it comes with both 64 and 32 bit versions. Just install the 64bit version. Compatibility is not a reason any more, Nvidia, Creative, AMD all have had 64 bit drivers for years, not to mention the drivers Vista comes with and has access to on MS updates.

I'd go 64-bit, but my 2GB of ram is killing me. Anyone wanna sell me some ram for cheap? I got my upgrade and figured 2GB would have been enough for now. Figures they'd drop in price a week after I buy everything.

Until I get some more ram, I'm not going anywhere close to Vista 64. Unless someone can convince me otherwise.

that is a seperate two disc

what he is talking about is a custom warez version that has both 32bit and 64bit on single disc

I'd vote for x64.
Well, except CMSS3D

But seriously, I'd recommend going with 64 as well. Wish I had gone that route.

CMSS3D works in the latest WHQL driver, just no the beta.

once new WHQL versions is finished it should probably work again

Another vote for vista 64. No problems with compatibility here. I would go with OEM and save yourself some money.

Remember to keep all your XP saves because they are compatible with Vista 64 bit and saves you leveling up your Windows character all over.
