Default Very quick question - help

I have an AMD 64 bit FX 51 processor oh from 4 years ago. I was wondering if I should install 64 bit Vista on it or stick with 32 bit Vista?

Default Re: Very quick question - help

The only real reason for 64bit is if you want to run more than 3.5gb of ram. Unless you are curious and like playing around with a new system and finding drivers.
ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64
