Default winxp x64

okay ive just downloaded and installed windows xp proffesional x64 180 day trial and when i went to use the counter strike stress test my fps went from 48fps to 93fps! is this normal for 64bit?, because ive never heard of it offering that much of a performance increase (note my old operating system was xp home)

yep u bet its normal but the thing is x64 wont work with lots of the games out there such as bf2142 and other popular games like 70 percent of all programs dont even function with x64 even if you run the programs in compatibility mode so most people just stick with windows professional for now until more programs utilize 64 bit software

and if you have a duel core system go with windows professional not home because home is only for single core processors which will make the fps seem like an even bigger jump
