Thank you! //David More about : vista x32 x64 Bluescreendeath a b U Graphics card April 4, 2009 5:25:32 PM Get the x64 bit. You can still run programs that are 32bit since it stores all 32bit files in a separate x86 folder. I have it and really don't experience any issues rangers April 4, 2009 5:40:27 PM I'm using 32 because i like to use bit torrent and peer guardian has problems on 64 Related resources Can Windows 7 x64 upgrade license be used for Vista x32? - Forum Dual booting windows (xp x32 + vista x64) - Forum Vista X64 and XP X32 Dual Boot Driver Question - Forum 8Gb ram Dual boot Vista x64 and XP x32 - Forum Not sure if x32 or x64 - Forum Can't find your answer ?

I've been using x64 for the past 8 months and I haven't had any problems with it. coozie7 a c 191 U Graphics card April 4, 2009 8:13:25 PM That`s a nice build, David Go 64 bit, you`ll lose at least 1Gb of that Corsair RAM with a 32 bit OS. You might want to swap the MSI card for one with a longer warranty, EVGA XFX or BFG spring to mind;) chef7734 April 4, 2009 8:40:22 PM There is pretty much no reason to go 32 bit anymore. Bittorrents work fine with 64 bit. Upendra09 a b U Graphics card April 4, 2009 8:45:32 PM of course x64 its new and improved tech!! And post ur questions in the right place faddy April 5, 2009 7:37:36 AM the 32 bit will not see more than 3 GB of your ram and if you choose to go with 64bit you be fine but its recomended to use vista64 specially for gaming PsyKhiqZero a b U Graphics card April 5, 2009 7:51:01 AM the keys are interchangeable. so get the x64 version and know that if you really don't like it you can just borrow/download a x86 disk and install that with you key. I would try to get a hold of a windows 7 beta. and use that till windows 7 comes out. but if you must buy get vista x64 IzzyCraft April 5, 2009 8:19:45 AM With that set up and memory heavy gpu i'd go x64 baddad April 5, 2009 11:47:29 AM 64 bit, every reason to use it. davidrossoni April 5, 2009 9:48:59 PM Thank you for your help, this community is very helpful. mamw93 April 5, 2009 10:38:48 PM With 4gb of RAM you'll need x64. Peer Guardian can run fine on x64 systems you just have to disable driver signing. rangers April 5, 2009 10:52:29 PM chef7734 said:There is pretty much no reason to go 32 bit anymore.
