I've put 32 bit Vista on 64 bit system...was I wrong?

Just wondering what did I lose by doing so....I had bad experiences with XP 64 bit so I decided to go with 32 bit Home Premium.... because better driver support 'n stuff.
Was that a bad decision? What would I gain by installing 64 bit version?

BTW, 32 bit version is working great for serious flaws or driver issues so far...

  1. For now, so long as you don't need to run 4 or more gigs of memory your decision was fine. You might want to revisit at some point in the future when Vista 64 realizes its potential.

    You absolutely made the right choice. I'm running 64 bit Vista right now and I'm REALLY regretting it. Driver support is absolutely horrid. I had to do some major hacking to get Vista to use my wireless network card. And forget about RAID support. I've got a RAID array that's completely useless because Silicon Image doesn't have a 64 bit Vista driver that works.
  3. Huuh, I feel much better now... I rarely meake good choices. :lol:
    Sorry for you, though...
