Re: 64 bit or 32 bit xp pro?
Here's what I've come up with from my experience.
Adv./Disadv. to 64-bit:
+ You get to use your full 4GB of RAM, not just 3.25GB
± Not all games officially "support" XP X64, but I have gotten most that don't to work
- Bad driver support
Adv./Disadv. to 32-bit:
+ From my experience: much more stable
- You don't get to use all your RAM, only 3.25GB (which should definitely be enough)
X64 didn't seem faster to me than XP Home.
I'm sure there are some other factors, but those are the major ones I noticed.
ASUS A8N32 SLI-Deluxe, AMD Athlon X2 3800+ @ 2.8GHz, eVGA 8800GTS 320MB, 2GB Corsair XMS DDR400, 160GB WD HDD + 320GB Seagate Barracuda 7200.10, AC Freezer 64 Pro, 700W OCZ GameXStream, NZXT Zero :D
I think I've decided to leave... maybe I'll come back sometime.
