Default x64

i was wondering if you guys thought it was worth it to wait for x64 to be more compatible with everything before i got my new comp.

Wait, its a pain in the butt to find driver compatable with x64, theres only one game that i know of that actully supports X64 (farcry). And from what ive seen in a few benchmarks, if you play 32 bit games in the 64 bit OS it actually plays slower.

This is why AMD is ontop of the game. I have not seen much 64bit intels and the ones that are out are expensive!
