need advise , should i buy a 64BIT machine ?
im now in a big indecision.
i was told by my father to buy a new pc and the "old" one to give it to him , and why do i wrote "old"
my pc is a p4 3ghz 1gb memory .
3 h.d in total of 280gb
2 dvd-rw nec + lg
inside cooler system cant remember the type but huge fan work on oil i think and ati radeon x800
and a monster case.
my prob is that i think that buying a new pc today will have to be a dual core (64bit) - i realy dont understand on those spec.
the h.d's and dvd-r are moveable and those are not a factor, what is a factor is the video card , which wont fit to the new pc that probebly will be a pci-e slot and mine is an agp.
my father is not a gamer and as i said at the first post is only want to be able to play falcon 4 af, but in the other hand im am a gamer and think that a new machine will have to be with at least parallel to the 800xl that i have , and that my sort of new ati card (only 5 month) will be "wasted".
furthermore to make a good machine with a parallel video card will probebly cost me a lot of money.
my budget is between 850$ - 950$ .
what is your opinion , should i just by to my father a new pc , and forget from the 64bit for the next year or two ?
does vista will be so great that ill be sorry for not buy a 64bit machine ?
thanx for you opinion
