Windows 7: 64bit

64bit

Hi, i installed build 7600 today and everything went smooth. I have nothing else installed on it except windows update. Its the 1st time i m using 64 bit so i have some questions.

1: Will i need all 64 bit apps like browser, AV, utilities to install with this or i can also use 32 bit apps?

2: I have 2GB RAM. Windows 7 build 7100 32bit worked awesome for me. Do i need more memory as i m switching to 64 bit?

3. Any significant advantage over 32 bit except the 4GB memory thing?

Thanks,

Dinesh.

You'll have to download the x64 drivers. Here's a site for looking at x64 programs.
