I would not get vista because it's CRAP and if you REALLY need to get windows vista then i would go for the 32bit.

for vista i would say the 64 bit, i'm not positive but i'm sure driver support is about the same for both versions. if you mean xp, 32 bit xp definently has better driver support than x64.

And if you want to know why vista is crap its becuase all it dose it makes winodws look better it has some much crap on it that you dont need, it needs 1 gb of ram to run and if you only have 1 gb you wont be able to run anything else becuase it would go to slow. also it take up too much fcking space. and all you get from useing vista is that the skins look cool and its got more programs that you can have fun with. but what the fuk would you need more programs when you can just downoload cool new ones.

I would get the 64-bit of Vista because more applications will come out in 64-bit after Vista's release. You will also be able to utilize your 64-bit ability.
