I know XP X64 can address more memory and if you plan on using more than 2GB, I've heard that's the way to go. As far as performance gains, I read about X64 in Maximum PC and they said there's really not much of a performance gain but I wouldn't know because I haven't used a 64-bit OS yet.

yea..I tryed it out.. And I tryd install my Ti 4200 drivers for it the newest ones. It didnt install becuase, windows thinks that the drivers are installeed and called has " Primary VGA ". I first when to uninstall to get the rid of the driver, restarted and it detected it before explorer.exe started, Than I went to safe mode. Try to remove it there... nothing..So I rebooted and found the driver file. Deleted it, rebooted and it still somehow reinsatll the file..... Somthing wrong with it. But what I liked was that it 2x faster than windows xp. Installing a 4GB game took like 10 seconds, downloading was around 600kb/s on internet.. It was a good OS!!

Just stick with XP for now, no bugs, (no) serious errors, alot easier to use.
