I'm concerned now.

I was wanting to get a Windows 7 machine and being a hard core gamer I have read many posts about games like flightsim that don't work in the 64 bit environment, so I am thinking of abandoning the whole Windows machine idea if my 32 bit programs wont run or run poorly. I heard nothing but good about 7 untill I read the posts about all of the people are having, so it looks like XP for gaming?

Dual boot.

Test Windows 7 to determine exactly how wrong, or right, 'everyone' is.

Most of them are wrong.

So then for gaming just save my money and forget Windows and stay with XP then.

One of us failed to communicate.
Perhaps I did miss under stand, but dosen't Windows 7 have an XP mode that solves that problem?

Until itís gone itís not obsolete! And 64-bit problems are not a myth! Unfortunately there are still vendors out there who have not fully supported the 64-bit OS for various reasons. Those are facts and not myths.

And yes, I'm using a 64-bit OS, however I do recognize that not everyone needs, or can run a 64-bit OS.

Facts, not myths
