All the latest HC games are coming with 64 bit OS.Is it possible to convert my laptop to 64 bit?
I know I'm a bit late to the party but can you tell us or link to a specific 64-bit only game?

BTW Windows 64-Bit runs a WoW scheme... Windows on Windows which allows 32-bit applications to run on it - Running 32-bit Applications (Windows)

And yes, a 64-bit app will require a 64-bit OS to properly run, or even install, but as far as I know, none of the game you list are 64-bit specific, nor are there any 64-bit only exclusive games (as of yet).

There are games that are optimized for a 64-bit OS, there have even been 64-bit specific patches for a 64-bit OS. Far Cry AMD 64-bit patch comes to mind. But that was a patch to optimize the game for Windows XP x64, the base game was still 32-bit.

Just in case this wasn't pointed out.

My friend's computer ran BF3 at 15 FPS with a Core 2 Duo, 2 gigs of ram, and GeForce 210. Suprising performance at low settings
