Default Re: Vista 64-Bit VS. 32-Bit

I would go with Vista 64 bit, it will let your processor operate at full capacity.

I have it, and it runs a lot smoother compared to the 32bit.

It will show the 4gb, but the way that 32bit handles memory as opposed to 64bit will still make it have a poorer performance.

You should make sure that all your hardware has drivers for 64 bit Vista before buying it first.
