XP 32 or XP 64 bit?
which one should i get to get the most performance out of my system?
I got a P2 940 and a asus M4A78 Pro
all you need to use a 64bit OS is a 64bit compatible CPU and Mobo correct?
and also, i have 4GB DDR2 1066Mhz, but 32 only sees 3.2GBs or so, and 64bit would see all 4gigs, my question also is...
when you add a PCIe card that has 512MB, or even 1GB onboard memory, does this reduce your usable RAM under a 32bit OS due to the card being read first, before the DDR2 RAM?
so if my GFX card was 1gb, my comp would only see a total of 2.2GB DDR2, but a total of 3.2GB ram including the DDR2 and Card right?
so if i got a 64 BIt OS it would solve the problem right?
hope you understand what um trying to say...
and would a XP 64bit really be worth the extra muscle, or wait till 64bit windows 7?
Iv heard that finding 64 bit drivers for components is a bit hard to get ahold of aswell...
You got to have a Fiddle in the band!
