    the benerfit is to be able to use more than 4gb addressable memory

    your computer if it has a 32 bit os (x86) it can only alocate 4gb of memory

    usually you want to have 4-8gb ram, ram is so cheap now id recomend 8gb any day of the week if your usign a x64 os

    ive been running windows 7 professional x64 since christmas 2 years ago and havent really run into problems


    x86 is old, there are many limitations in x86 that they expanded on in x64,


    its much like the efi and bios debate (i perferd the old bios to efi, look and feel i mean)

    efi adds more features and allows partitions of more than 2tb as boot partitions (if i remember right)
