Windows 7: 32bit vs 64bit on 2gb Ram

27 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit on an HP Pavilion with 2 GB of RAM. It runs just fine, including all the games I play (granted they are older, need less processing power). I don't have any performance issues at all. My pc boots quickly, loads apps quickly, burns thru most SQL queries at a reasonable pace. I have a dual core AMD chip... Like I said, I have no problems with performance with only 2 GB's of RAM.

Unlikely - I've had zero issues, and you need more memory. Bioshock 2 recommends 3GB for the Steam release, and I suspect its optimised for 64-bit. Even for multitasking, 7 will swallow it and manage it properly.

I am happy you have not had problems. Unlikely as you think it may be, others, myself included have not been as fortunate. The overwhelming number of BSOD's are 64 bit, the majority of driver issues are as well.

Windows 7 64 bit build 7600

32 bit systems will be faster up to a certain extent of hardware configurations, from where 64 bit take a clear lead.

Windows 7

My 64 bit 3.4Ghz Core 2 duo install worked snappily with 2Gb, no difference noticed with 4Gb although I haven't installed Photoshop yet, that likes lots of memory. DDR2 has doubled in price in the last year (in the UK).

W7 64bit:Ok to install 32bit programs outside the 32bit programfolder?
OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
