Stick with 32 bit. Your drivers won't work, you'll have compatibiliy issues, and it's just not worth the hassle. I'm speaking from experience here.
now thats a shame i have always valued you as a honest and professional CF member.

but that statement is just this biggest load of crap i have ever heard.

you cannot just assume that his hardware will not with 64 bit OS you cannot presume that he will have compatibility problems.

we have no problems here with opinions e.g your drivers may not work or may not be available.

but that statement was just a complete lie.

i switched from 32 bit to 63 bit on a test with absolutely no problems at all it varies per user.

thats like saying dont buy a segate hardrive they will overheat and brake ? just because 1 of mine did ?

I guarantee that in any setup some things will be incompatible with a 64 bit OS. Be it network drivers, sound card drivers, printer drivers, or a program, something will not work 99% of the time.
For an average user like him, it'll just be too much of a hassle to go out and try to track down some sort of working 64 bit drivers. Especially when they may not even exist.

I should negative rep you for disrespecting me like that, but I'll let it go.
