    Yes I am running XPpro x64 now because XPpro 32x would only recognize a little offer 3gig with 64bit Im seeing 4 gig.

    But Hate 64bit because none or few of my programs run on 64bit.

Depends on how much memory your motherboard can accomodate. If *********** board can support 4 gig then just plug your ram and it should work.. xp supports up to 4 gig of ram so even if you connect an 8 gig,it will only recognize the 4gig. Hope this help,

if you have 8GB RAM you have to use a 64 bit version of the operating system to recognize it correctly.

Difference between 32 bit & 64 bit OS ?


Here is a link from Microsoft that answers some general questions.

http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/41531554-d5ef-4f2c-8fb9-149bdc5c8a701033.mspx#EO

Bascially 64-bit processing can access more information at one time which will in essence be faster. 64-bit processing can access more RAM. 32-bit systems have a 4GB max. 64-bit systems have increased security benefits also. There are more links on the page above if you want to go deeper.

If you have an older single core computer, I would stick with XP. If you are buying an Op system for a new custom built rig, go with Vista. Just make sure you put as much ram as you can in the box, I would recommend 64 bit with more than 4 gigs. I run 8 gigs and never have any problems that people claim they have with Vista, mine has not crashed once.

Best operating system for new build?


Either Windows XP or Vista 64 bit edition, depending on what you like...I won't get into the xp vs. vista battle here lol. The 64 bit operating systems can see all of your memory, with the 32 bit OS's, you're limited to around 3 or so gigs. Do note, that there may be some incompatibilities with a 64 bit operating system, though most programs should run fine.
