Hi all, :razz:

I am in a dilemma whether i shud go 4 32-Bit XP or 64-Bit XP ? :cry:

coz if i install 64-Bit then all my 32-Bit apps wont run (such as antivirus,ms office & 3rd party apps) & what will happen 2 all my games iso's whether they run on 64-Bit OS....:?

morever in 32-Bit only 3.5 GB of RAM is utilized whereas in 64-Bit more than 4GB of RAM can be used....:sad:

If you want use PHotoshop then You must go for XP 64 Bit.

Rest Its good for multitasking also as it can utilize more ram.

And almost all the 32bit applications (which you mention those also) works equally well in xp 64 bit.

So go for 64 bit. I too using that.

1. If RAM >= 4 GB : 64 BIT OS
2. If RAM < 4GB : 32 BIT OS

All 32BIT applications run seamlessly on the 64BIT OS, via WoW (windows on windows) subsystem. All the M$ 64BIT OS's have WoW.

Only constraint is, your processor should support 64BIT instructions. I am using XP 64BIT, past 8-9 months...absolutely no issues. Only problem I faced was that I could not find drivers for Sony Cybershot.

@ OP Give your config on which you want to use the OS. It will help us guide you better.

64bit is matured now..
BUT
i don't think going for 64bit XP is a good idea now!

better get a Windows 7 64bit...

Are you going to buy the Original one. I don't think so.

If Original then Install xp 64 bt.

If Not Original then you can Install Both whats the problem.

Buy the HD4850 card as it is cheaper and can run almost all the games easily in high settings except ( Crysis and Clear sky).

Better W7 x64 than XP x64. For a GPU, well, I'd ask you to wait, but if you can't then get the 4850. What price are you getting it for?

So Mr. Karan is buying a new rig. Well, honestly, C2D E8400 is a bad choice, especially so now. If you list your budget for rig alongwith your primary usage, then we can help you best.

Anyway, assuming that you looking for best graphic card under 10k, then Zotac GTX260 SP216 (65nm) is for 9.5k. Else, get Palit GTX260 SONIC @ 10.5k. 4870 1GB is for around 9.7k.

Whatever you buy, please get a good SMPS.

dont buy ddr2, ddr3 rams. Get AMD if possible, as it is king unless you can spend ~18k on proc + mobo.

Attitude matters
Got a call from Microsoft Office, Delhi yesterday. Finally my Windows 7 Ultimate for which I had registered with Tata Croma is ready to be picked up. Price she said something like Rs. Rs.10,553 and not the earlier indicated Rs.11,999. I shall also get a free Reebok watch. (hoping against hope that its a lady's watch - or is there none in Reebok?????)

This time around I have decided to switch over to 64bit. Shall post any hassles as I go along.
