read in a magazine that there is a 64 bit upgrade available, but you must have a 64 bit cpu and Windows XP 64 os to run it. well i have the processor but you cant buy a retail version of the os yet :(

Can't you download the 64-bit version of Windows XP for free if you already own the 32-bit version?

seems you can only get XP 64 when you buy a new pc, maybe one day it will be retail , as for drivers it would mean searching for them on every hardware makers site thats in your pc, in other words chipsets,graphics,sound, etc, although i assume basic drivers are built into the os the same as 32 bit xp

It will take a while to go retail. They want to make money on the Retail version before releasing OEMs to the public. I personally don't mind, as I'm only going to get it after I upgrade to an Athlon64 for Win64 (not the same as the current Athlon64s, this new processor is developed for x64).
