Default Windows Vista Ultra 32bit vs XP Pro 64 Bit?

I found a deal where the vista is $11 and the xp pro is $7.

I have 4 gigs of ram but i really wanna try out Vista
but it would seem such a waste of 4 gb of ram

I heard that a lota games can't run on 64bit systems. Is this true?

Which one should i get?

get vista because it has direct x 10 which is the latest and xp only has up to 9. Anyway, vista ultra.... that isn't a real name, they are trying to cheat you

Sorry about that...That was my shorthand for Vista Ultimate.

But anyone actually prefer vista ultimate over xp pro? List any pros or cons?

ok lol wouldn't want to get a non genuine windows, that happened to me


Anyway, just get vista because it will be easier to use and has the best graphical potential. you can just upgrade to 64-bit when you need to.

If you can't decide, get both, because that's a good deal and very cheap!
Buy XP and Vista, try Vista out, if you don't like it sell it or keep it for future use, if you do like it sell XP because they won't be selling it anymore soon.

Also, how much do you use the comuter and what do you do on the computer?

Maybe..the guy there said he has a couple copies of vista left. There is 1 that says 32bit and the other disk doesn't say on the label.

If it doesn't say which version...do we assume its 32 or 64?
