Sounds like a plan. I'll stick with it until all the new DirectX 10 games come out! Bioshock is on my list and Crysis and UT3 will fully support x64 and run in X64 Bit right out of the box.

i just down graded to win32xp from win64xp because some of my apps crashed in it.i like win64 much better then win32, it seems more stable and much more responsive. the only problems i have come accross is 64bit drivers for legacy cards and some multimedia apps dont like win64 either...
