Windows 7 32bit - 64bit GAMING Tags: CPUs Performance Gaming Windows 7 Last response: September 3, 2012 12:04 PM in CPUs Share gboy_05 September 3, 2012 11:08:39 AM Hello everyone, is there any difference between Windows7 32bit and 64bit in gaming performance?.. I'm using windows 7 32bit and my RAM is 4gb.. I want to know what are the benefits using 64bit that 32bit can't give to me when it comes to gaming performance. And by the way i'm planning to buy another 4gb memory to make it 8gb ram. Please enlighten me if i need switch in 64bit or i will just stick to my 32bit. Anyway my OS is genuine.

The 32 bit OS can't use more than 4Gb. m 0 l seko512 September 3, 2012 11:40:15 AM for your 4GB 32 is good use 64bit for more than 4GB RAM m 0 l Related resources 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 7 for gaming? - Forum Is it possible to run Windows XP 32-bit and Windows 7 64-bit on the same computer? - Forum Upgrading 32-bit Windows 7 to 64-bit Windows 7? - Forum Upgrading Windows 7 professional 32-bit to 64-bit - Forum windows 7 32-bit to 64-bit - Forum Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer aramisathei September 3, 2012 11:51:09 AM There is another option. If you plan on staying 32-bit (cost, or whatever reason), you can look at adding some more ram and running your games off of a persistent ramdisk. Provided they aren't too large (under 4gb, or however much ram you plan to add), you'll likely see a substantial increase in games read/write times. The simplest solution is to go 64-bit if you add more ram, but there are uses for more than 4GB at 32-bit if you want to stay that way (for whatever reason). m 0 l gboy_05 September 3, 2012 11:51:41 AM Thanks guys, by the way my desktop is new and i didn't notice that the OS windows7 is 32bit, is that ok if i reformat my new desktop even it is new? are there any consequences? m 0 l aramisathei September 3, 2012 11:56:06 AM gboy_05 said:Thanks guys, by the way my desktop is new and i didn't notice that the OS windows7 is 32bit, is that ok if i reformat my new desktop even it is new? are there any consequences? If you re-format your operating system drive, you'll lose all of the data on that drive unless you back it up elsewhere. Otherwise no, there aren't any real consequences. m 0 l gboy_05 September 3, 2012 12:04:29 PM aramisathei said:If you re-format your operating system drive, you'll lose all of the data on that drive unless you back it up elsewhere.
