64-bit only for me. First 64-bit OS for me like nutcrackr, but don't see any reason now to use 32-bit. Before Windows 7, I was 32-bit as 64-bit drivers and support weren't that great.

64bit OS has taken off a lot thanks to W7. Compatibility issues are really non-existent now, may have issues with very very very old games.

i think sc1....has some issues?...not too sure...

but drivers have been very solid releases...so...y go for 32bit? Also GPU's have started to move into the 1GB standard / 2GB mark...

I do "modern" games on my main desktop pc running XP 64.

I play old games on an ancient machine that dual boots 98SE and XP 32.

Everyone who doesn't convert to 64 bit will be burned at the stake.
