i was just about to download the latest drivers for the 8800gtx i just bought online (stil waiting for it to arrive), when i realised that i can't see just the standard xp 32 bit edition listed on the differnt choices of drivers to download. Do i need xp x64 or something?

i wasnt gunna get vista untill some direct x 10 games were released.

Is xp 64 bit edition faster on games like supreme commander? i have a core 2 duo e6600 cpu

It's a waste right now.

Get Vista later.

Yes, the 64-bit version won't have any effect on your 32-bit games

and vista in general will slow them down
