Hi,

Well lately, i've bought 2 more gb of ram, and togeather i now have 3gb, and i've wanted to use vista again because when i bought it back in april 07, it was crusty and couldn't compat with anything, so now i want to switch back to vista with SP1.

But Which version? 32x or 64x?


Please tell me a reason for your choice so i can get an understanding when i choose which to go for.

I don't really think this complies with the new rules. Basically, it's not a debatable topic.

64 bits SUCKS! I had Windows Xp Pro x64 bits, but it was one great swindle. Much things won't work, and you the onliest Virusscan which support X64 is AVG Anti Virus! Well, I recommend you to don't use it.

This thread is a bit weird.

Firstly, you suggest that only Windows can be either 32bit or 64bit. (the current linux cores are 32bit, but they'll probably be 64bit in the future).

Secondly, people associate 32bit with XP, and 64bit with Vista, which is wrong since Vista is not a processor, but an Operating System. It controls the CPU and memory bus, but that doesn't makes it the processor.

The only difference is that 64bit takes 64bit per memory location. Addresses are thus twice as long and can locate to almost and infinite number of gigabytes (while a 32bit can only point to anything in 4GB of RAM, 2^32).

So, in fact, a 64bit is an improvement over a 32bit processor. 64bit is better, no matter what OS is installed (Vista is plain crap).

Still hardly any drivers for 64bit operating systems, stay with 32bit unless you're a host.

I don't know where you're getting your information from, but everything being sold today usually has x64 drivers available. The only problem I've had with my system is a ghetto printer that I have, probably gonna get a new one soon. For now, using the printer in a virtual machine will have to do.

Vista isn't crap if you have 8GB of RAM like me! :O

This is something similar to:

What is better?
-Dual Core Processor
-Quad Core Processor


Of course 64 is better.

From experience. Vista 64 bit didn't have drivers for my Archos MP3 player (which is pretty much just an external drive) or even a fuckin' simple flash drive.

Hi,
There are already 64 bit Linux OS's since long time, i will choose 64 bit processor, because i will be able to run 32 apps on him too.
for OS i will choose Vista 64 bit Vista, because i will be able to run all my 32 bit and 64 bit apps/games with small modification

64 bit, it doesnt matter what your silly 32 bit can do 64 bit can do it better. and as for your archos not working that just because archos are lazy bastards when it comes to releasing anything, my archos av500 hasn't had a new firmware release in a year or so. but it still works with vista

Couldn't care less whether you lot think a 64bit O/S is any good. From my experience, it's a pile of poop if you've got kit that's a couple of years old. Only upside I ever found from 64bit was the higher RAM capacity, but the downsides far outweigh the good.

So get a new kit, and don't make such weak attempts to bash it. I have an older bro who uses Vista x64 SP1 so he can use 4GB of memory, and it runs perfectly fine. The only negative left that can be spotted comes from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas Multiplayer. When exiting that, on Vista x86 or x64, it pops up a repeating error to flood your screen. Task manager is very helpful at that point.
Of course, neither of us (being me and my brother) play GTA: SAMP anymore, so that doesn't even matter.
I'll be installing Vista x64 SP1 in about six-to-eight days from now, when my new computer parts arrive and I assemble them (entirely custom build).

Nobody sane would buy a new MP3 player, a new digital camera and a new damn flash-drive purely to have something that'd work on 64bit. You might be able to waste mummy's money on new gear whenever something doesn't work correctly, but the majority of people don't have that luxury. Until 64bit becomes mainstream, it'll be as poopie as it ever was.
