I have a q9300 2850 MHZ, p35 board, corsair dhx ram 2x2 gb 760 MHZ 4-4-4-10, Ati 4850.
Is my rig going to be faster with vista 64, or with vista 32. (Currently using vista 32)
My 32 bit vista sees 3500 MB of Ram.
I use my comp for work (microsoft office, dreamveawer cs3, etc.) and gaming.
v64 will allow you to use all 4 gig. i just installed v64 and works fine. i also dual-boot to xp32. xp only sees 3.25gig. i haven't seen any 64-bit issues yet but have only been playing around with it for less than 2 weeks.
Vista 64 bit has worked just fine for me. Have been running it for 2 or 3 months now. No BSODs, no OS reloads, and very, VERY few application crashes. I do moderate gaming on it and it seems very stable in that regard as well.
