I'm most likely not getting 64bit.
What why, getting 32bit windows on a rig like that is stupid. Like sticking a cab driver as a Ferrari F1 driver (bit exageratted but still)
If you're getting more than 3GB of RAM you'll need a 64-bit OS to utilise the extra RAM. I thought this was common knowledge ...
I know, but some or the programs I have won't run on 64bit. I know the source games will work, and I think GTA4IV will work. I have no idea about TorchLight or Unreal.
[QUOTE=Sodisna;19513369]I'm most likely not getting 64bit.[/QUOTE] Get 64-bit. It's the same price and is better.

What about driver support? Y'know what, I'll just dual boot.
[QUOTE=Sodisna;19513843]What about driver support? Y'know what, I'll just dual boot.[/QUOTE] Sounds good. That's what I'm doing. But only because I have the beta 7.

[QUOTE=Sodisna;19513843]What about driver support? Y'know what, I'll just dual boot.[/QUOTE] The driver support is perfectly fine. Just get Windows 7 x64.
