Question Which version would be better for gaming?

Vista 32bit or 64bit? I am a gamer and that is really all I use my PC for other than msn and that sort of thing. Which version would I be better off going with?

I just answered your other thread about the same topic. Please don't make multiple threads, for the same question.
