Default x64 compatability...

Anyway I can test Windows x64 for driver compatability without having to install it?

Just look for 64bit drivers for all your pc parts if the parts dont support 64bit then dont bother with x64.

Windows x64 doesn't detect any drivers itsself? Find that hard to believe. I don't have any odd drivers to find anyway, just my motherboard drivers (onboard sound and LAN) and my video card, that's it....

If x64 does detect drivers it will be for USB or something. I would make sure to get some 64 bit mobo drivers at least, the graphics card drivers should be easy enough. The hard things to find 64bit drivers for is normally printers, webcams, wireless adaptors etc.
