Photoshop x86 or x64 ?

Hello. I Need to Know Everyone Use x86 or x64 for Photoshop. I Don't Know What Different Between Both Versions But I Feel It Same

The 64bit version can handle more memory. That is all.

If you have an x64 OS, running x64 software can make full usage of all the hardware capabilities. 64 bits programs may be optimized with specific x64 processor instructions that make processing more efficient than x86.

So, in short, using x64 software gives you more performance than the x86 equivalent, and also the ability to handle more memory per program if you have it. Functionally, both should be equivalent.

EDIT: This is not photoshop specific. All that actually applies to any program that has both x86 and x64 versions. Both do the same, but the 64 bits may run faster.

Your spec indicate you are using Pro 64 so Photoshop 64 would be my choice. Keep in mind that such programs like a lot of ram and your specs don't indicate how much ram you have.
This little program will help you with specs.

Some plug-ins only work on 32bit photoshop, so if you have 64 bit computer then install both 32 and 64 bit photoshop.
