Simple question on 64-bit
If i Install MS XP 32-bit ,on a 64bit machine will the machine run in 32 or 64 bits (i was told by my friend if i install 32bit windows the pc will run at 32bit only unless i get the 64 bit version)

please help :) :D

Your friend is correct. But don't get the 64bit edition, because it is not compatible with many things....especially drivers.

to answer what will probably be your next question, no you're not missing out by using the processor in 32bit mode. 64bit doesn't actually have much effect on most applications the average person would use ;)
