More about worth
  1. yes it is i upgraded from xp32bit to w7 32bit and got 5fps increase in cod5...its time to upgrade
  2. The retail upgrade boxed version contains both 32 bit and 64 bit disks, so no real reson not to. You may want to add more ram later and then it's a must.
    When upgrading from XP an inplace upgrade is not possible even if it's 32 bit, a clean install is a must.
