Re: amd 64 or amd 64 xp???
Yes, I agree. 64-bit is the way of the future. The AMD Athlon 64 series CPU is the primary CPU you can get now. They have backward compatibility with 32-bit hardware and software and full 64-bit ready for Windows Vista 64-bit coming out late next year.
*Fact: Microsoft Window's Blue Screen of Death vs Computerforums.org's White Screen of Death. Which is worse?
