Your right he didnt say anything about buying 32bit. but i was just suggesting that if the buyer of the PC would like to get all of its performance out of its ram then go 64 bit if they truely believe that they will use 4 gigs of ram... if not then why spend the money on the extra 2 gigs when 2 will serve you just fine if your in 32 bit... if your in 32 bit then you shouldnt be doing very ram intensive stuff anyways..... i just dont see it as practical.

But there are people that are stuck on 32bit.... eh i cant blame them. alot of programs wont work on 64bit because developers wont reprogram their software to work on 64bit.
