xp pro: 32 or 64 bit?
Im trying to decide which os to get. My cpu/mobo will support both 32 and 64 bit. Should i go with:
Windows XP Pro
Windows XP Pro x64
Windows Media Center Edition
It is intended for gaming, watching movies, programming(C++), flash animation, and photo-editing. And i heard that the x64 had trouble with the wireless network cards, but i have a hard connection to the router, so im good there.
Where is the best place to purchase the os? Should i get oem or retail? This is my first time to purchase an os, until now i have borrowed from friends/used discs that came with an old gateway pc.
Any info is appreciated.
