    Urhm. I'm pretty new to this, but my impression is that if you have anything over 3GB of RAM, you need to use 64-bit, otherwise it won't be recognised.

    As for the games, I suppose it depends which games you're planning on playing. A few random magazine articles I read recently recommended i5's+ for gaming, but didn't really justify, I'm guessing bang-for-your-buck kinda thing. i3's apparently came under budget builds, but I guess if you have a decent GPU? (Sorry, can't comment on the 460gtx) Sorry, don't have any references and/or links for all this random info.

    Simply Put:
    Yes.
    64-bit.
    Windows 7.


    In more detail:
    Depends on the game but your system should be able to handle all current games, you may have to lower some details on the more intensive ones.

    64-bit windows OS's are the only ones capable of using or "seeing" more than a theoretical 4GB of memory. This number is actually less due to system reservations and some other stuff. Windows 7 is the latest operating system and an improvement over windows vista. They will both work but I recommend 7. The 64-bit version of windows XP however, is unstable and flawed.
