Default 32-Bit Vs. 64-Bit What do you Game on?

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..
