Re: XP 64 OS question
ive only had issues with second rate programs running on x64. iTunes doesnt work with it. games that are a little older may have issues unless you can find a x64 patch for them (i think i had to do this in Homeworld2). as far as newer games, they run just fine. i dint think this matters, but i have all my games stored on a seperate 60gb drive (10,000rpm one) than the OS, my OS is on a 20gb cheapo drive, and i have a 60gb for mass storage(mp3, movies, pr0n).
youll love the quickness x64 gives, especially when going through your directories, just lightning fast. i like to tell people "my pc no longer thinks, it just does".
btw im upgrading soon to a 2.2ghz Toledo dual core, 2gb ram and sata hard drives in raid configuration when Vista comes out.
