Hey guys i just wanted to know if any of you run 64 bit vista. Building a new computer soon and thinking whether or not to go 32 or 64bit

I want to run 4gb of ram and i know 32 bit can only read about 3.2gb but i hear the 64bit version has a bit of problems with drivers and such?

Any help from someone with the 64bit would be much appreciated=p

Most say go 32 bit Vista for now. The 64 bit version isn't supported well enough yet. You can always pay $10 later to have them send you the CDs to make it 64 bit anyway.

eh, I really have no trouble with Vista64 anymore. Just make sure the makers of your hardware have 64bit drivers before moving to this system.

I've been running 64-bit Vista since it was released and I've had practically no trouble with it. You have to use signed drivers for all of your hardware or the system makes you jump through hoops to use them, but by now you should have no trouble finding appropriate drivers.

What they said. Vista has been around for almost a year now and many of the problems people attribute to it haven't actually been a problem for a long time.

Oh i didnt know you could do that!! i was thinking getting 64bit pre installed and buying 32bit. I think i might do that.

And thanks so far for all your input.
