Windows 7: My Configuration: 32 or 64?

Well, you could run either 32 or 64. As long as you have the drivers for everything, I would go 64-bit. But if something doesn't have a driver, don't sweat it and just run 32-bit. It will likely only use 3.2GB of your RAM or so....so as long as that isn't critical it shouldn't be an issue.

i've personally never felt that the 64-bit platform was really noticeable faster. Having run both 32 and 64 bit's on the same machine for testing, they seem the same to me doing most normal things.

I personally would consider it a put-down, not really an insult unless the other person wants to take it as one, which means if they did take it as an insult they likely ARE uneducated. =)

Back to the topic.

I still say the thread author should just try out 64-bit. It could just be bad luck for me but single-core with x64 was murder. Then again it was with Vista XD
