I have 4gb of ram, but windows says that 3.25gb is useable. So all my games that I play in 32, will not work in 64?
My board supports 8gb which is stupid, because the 770 chipset should support 16...anyway..when I insert more than 2x2 paired, it wont boot up. Even if I add 1gb RAM+the 2x2. It MUST be paired RAM, come in the same package! Fkn disgusting motherboard!
So I really don't need 64bit just because of more memory
Most RAM is either dual or triple channel, which means that you must install 2 (or 3) sticks of RAM (generally of the same kind) for the motherboard to work. This is a consideration you should have looked at when you bought the computer if you later planned to upgrade.
No, you don't NEED x64 unless you want to use the 4 gigs. It does NOT cost more than the x32, and if you bought a x32 bit OS already, you should be able to get the x64 version for free, with the same product key.
Here is another good resource for comparing 32-bit and 64-bit - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/32-bit-and-64-bit-Windows-frequently-asked-questions
Additionally, if you have questions on any of your specific games working with 64-bit Windows 7, you can visit the Windows 7 Compatibilty Center, and type in the name of the game. This will tell you if your game is compatible with Windows 7 (32-bit, or 64-bit) - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/default.aspx
