Default windows xp X64

What is Windows XP X64 Professional?

I have a new 64-bit processor with 512MB RAM, it is worth upgrading to a 64-bit OS?

How are the drivers? Hard or easy to find? Is it expensive? I know my processor is an AMD Athlon 64 3500, so it should support X64.

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/64bit/default.mspx Not sure if it's worth it, but I hear really good things about it. My buddy has the same processor and runs regular 32-Bit Windows. Also, I don't know much about the drivers.

Looks more like a business OS.

I might as well not bother.
