Re: My new comp
Yep, a good system.
64-bit is quite good, actually. Performance drop isn't that noticeable, running 32-bit programs, and there are 64-bit versions of programs like 7zip and xVid codec, which show considerable performance increase over 32-bit versions in a 32-bit environment.
I'd say keep that PSU, but if you have stability problems, then replace it with a higher-wattage unit.
