64 bit in most cases speeds up systems and allows you to use more memory where 32 bit will only allow you to use 4gb.
However, in your particular case your pc's motherboard is maxed out at 4gb's by default.
Another important thing to consider is the compatibility of your favorite games. I would recommend that since you are a gamer that you do some research into whether or not you will have any software conflicts. This is a regular complaint about 64 bit.

Your current operating system is most likely a version of windows. Depending on your model and type of computer, you may have any of the following versions of windows:
Windows XP Home Edition
Windows XP Professional Edition
Windows Vista Home Basic Edition
Windows Vista Home Premium Edition
Windows Vista Business Edition
Windows Vista Enterprise Edition
Windows Vista Ultimate Edition
Windows 7 Starter
Windows 7 Home Basic
Windows 7 Home Premium
Windows 7 Professional
Windows 7 Enterprise
Windows 7 Ultimate
Windows Thin PC
Are you sure you're using the right version of Windows? The label should tell you whether it's XP Home, XP Pro, Vista Ultimate, Vista home, etc. You have to match the version of Windows with the key code.
Yes that happens and you need to install the driver for it but make sure that you have Vista upgrades

been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known
issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and
Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista
Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.
Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows
Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback.
Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been
completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do
recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before
updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the
Hi thefuncouple, here is the ASRock link for supported CPU's: http://www.asrock.com/mb/cpu.asp?Model=K7VM2&s=462 The Athlon XP 2600+ CPU is the highest CPU this board can support. (It will be hard to find one). Main web site for the K7VM2: http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=K7VM2 Honestly, ASRock does not have drivers for Vista. Some of the drivers listed for XP may work with Vista. Your best chance is to download & run Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor 1.0 (Before installing Vista in to your system). http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=42b5ac83-c24f-4863-a389-3ffc194924f8&DisplayLang=en Vista, any version needs at least 1GB of memory. Two GB is recommended. After running Upgrade Advisor you will know if your ASRock motherboard can handle Vista. You should be able to upgrade to Vista (Over-writing XP) but only if your system passes the Upgrade Advisor. Your best bet would be to buy a new system with Vista on it. Your ASRock board is just too old for Vista. You'll save money upgrading to a more supportive PC.
Good luck thefuncouple!
Vista is not for everyone, many users end up going back to XP.
Thank you for using fixya.
First of all, are you using the most recent version of uGuru? Previous versions did not work under Vista. The current version is 3.104.
You can download it here: http://mainboard-drivers-and-utilities.free-driver-download.com/Abit/38474/Abit-uGuru-v3.104-Windows-2000-XP-2003-Vista-XP-x64.html
Assuming you have the newest version, can you get me the exact text of the error message? That would make it easier to troubleshoot.
