Seriously tho. I thought 64bit would be slower? All the instructions take twice the amount of space. Code will double in size, more bandwidth is used just reading the instructions.

Can someone explain why just switching to 64bit mode actually makes anything faster?

I'm more concerned about the architecture being built to improve 32 bit and 64 then only that fact.
As to winXP 64, we don't even know what it'll cost

I am more concerned with heat issues than speed over my current set up.

I know it's no use having the fastest CPU on the planet if it's going to die of heat in a few days.

Given the integrated heat spreader, I'm not concerned about that. Since I put a new hsf on my vidcard, my AthXP system isn't giving me any problems at all.
