Does XP64bit run faster?

Im considering getting the Beta Windows Professional XP-64bit. Will it run faster than the normal XP(home edition)? Will games run faster?

Or should I just stay with XP HomeX32

  1. No, I read a review w/ benchmarks for the 64-bit Windows and they don't live up to the 32-bit version. When you hear 'Beta' and 'Microsoft' in the same sentence, just don't do it.

  2. I have it on my machine , and even if it is beta, it is stable enough.But not all drivers are ported to, so you just cannot use it for everyday task.

  3. 64 bit OS will run same bit apps faster, but 32 bit apps run slower.
