I think the GPU should be fine looks like its really the best one since my computer would be for editing and pretty much multimedia. Now whats the difference between windows 64 bit and 32 bit like I never understood the difference?

32 bit will usually only recognize around 3.5 gigs of ram. you would be getting 6 gigs, so 64-bit is the way to go.

Crap Thanks Muffin Enthusiast. I said 64bit earlier but pasted the incorrect one.

The one Extreme posted is correct 64bit all the way. My Bad.

Main difference for you is 32bit only recognizes 3.5gb of ram. for more info:

Lord knows we are going to have to keep an eye on each other when the i7 comes in two different sockets.

ps I need to spread some more around before I can hook you up. Will take care of it soon. Thanks again.
