I thought that Microsoft is only allowing XP Pro OEM cd-keys to be traded in.

I couldn't have stated it better myself. I honestly think that win XP-64 first comes out, it will bring a decrease in performance in 32 bit apps, especially games, until people like ATI and Nvidia get good 64-bit drivers out, or game manufacturers recompile the code in 64-bit.
