I have 8GB RAM and have planned to get 8GB more. I just installed win7 ultimate 64 bit. Is this config better or should i use 32bit with Xfast ram?

With 32-bit Windows, less than 4 GB of the memory would be usable.

Windows 64bit with 16Gb of ram no question about it. !
As said a 32bit os will only use 4gb of the memory, so it would be a waste.

Asrock claims that it's X-fast ram technology does not let the extra ram in a 32 bit system go to waste and that i can put as much ram as i like.

Yeah... I'm not totally convinced it'll work all that well though, but anyway - X-Fast RAM works with 64-bit Windows too, so there's no reason to use a 32-bit version.

Best go 64bit, more you use the computer, more you'll prob want more DRAM
