Can U use 4GB Of RAM in Windows XP
XP 32bit will not recognize all 4gb of memory. At max, it's around 3.2~3.5gb.
Thanks For The info. I am about to build a new computer ASRock X48TurboTwins-WiFi LGA 775 Intel X48 (Motherboard) / Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 Wolfdale 3.16GHz 6MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor (CPU) / Not Sure on RAM Yet, but I am going with DDR2 Not DDR3 Yet
just get either 2x1 of quality stuff and u should b fine. Or if u have a little more cash go 2x2
what video card u getting?
I hate Vista So I am Sticking with XP (Transfer Rates Suck Ass in Vista)
Just go 64-bit and save yourself the hassle...
Run vista on a good system and u wont notice any slowdowns... and im not sure what u mean by transfer rates suck.
I am afraid that my programs that i love won't be Compatible with 64-Bit
Copy rates in Vista are lower than in XP. IE copying a file across a network etc. This is true. It's definately improved in SP1, but it's still not up to XP standards.
When moving files It is slow very slow
Not since SP1.
Why do so many people hate Vista! If anything transfter rates will be better in Vista than XP if both up to date.
just another FYI, please dont start asking loads of 4gb and 32/64bit questions, there must be more threads on here about that than anything else! Please use search!
just an idea. Someone should right a guide and FAQ for 4gb questions, then it can be sticked to avoid so many repeated threads.
That you love? Like what? I've ran Vista X64 for months now with nary an issue or incompatability. 32-bit programs for the most part, say 98-99% of them work fine in x64 from my experience.
Erm....I'm running 32-bit programs on 64-bit.
hey thanks for the help guys I will try 64-Bit XP and see how it goes
just get vista damnit... lol
my son has vista SP1 32-Bit and the transfer rates has no difference from the first vista release
only in Xp- 64bit . But that windows has problems with drivers .
i bought vista 4 times 1 for my computer (Witch I was not impressed with it) / on my sons computer with SP1 and it still sucks ass / and on my laptop & my girlfriends Laptop and all versions suck in transfer rates. That is my only complaint about Vista
Did you ever stop to think those computer (hardware) might me too dated for vista ?
//rant : Why do people expect to run Vista on XP hardware ? Same thing happened when XP couldn't run on Windows 98/2000 hardware . As time goes by everything becomes more beautiful, software has to look better than the last version. If this didn't happen then we would still be looking like playing Wii .
I can't afford video card yet So i am sticking with my 7950 GT
But in about 2 months it will be the 4870 X2
No I build new computer's often and all the computer's that I had vista on was very able to run it
Pfft, never had any issues. In most cases I was using Vista 64-bit drivers and just installed them manually.
Vista rocks man. I used to hate it too but I cant help but laugh at XP users now and there stubborn-ness
Yes I am a bit stubborn but I run Vista on my laptop and When I transfer big files ie 700MB+
I am waiting for a long time and it just pisses me off and i just close my laptop and go back to my pc with XP
Well I can see this becoming another flame thread, xp vs vista, blah blah blah...I've used both x86 ans x64 XP and Vista..and various Vista versions...I disliked Vista x86 in any version, I found it to lose stability over time...sure some of it was my fault from tweaking and tuning shit I would've been better off leaving alone.
I got talked into going Vista x64 when I was planning on going x64 for full 4GB RAM usage in proper fashion. I was going to go back to XP x64 as I didn't have a bad experience with it, but it just seems like it was left in the corner on support imo...you can make it work just fine, but I wanted something that flat out worked out of the chute with modern support...Vista x64 fit that bill, I installed it and haven't looked back. It runs fast, my games load quickly, things copy pretty quick, my PC is very fast with Vista installed...this OS has been improved quite a bit since release as I've seen from experience.
I'd still recommend like a few others trying Vista x64, it's more stable imo, has a lot of support, and can only get better...XP has peaked and will eventually fade out, may not be today or tomorrow or next year, but it will happen. Eventually everyone's gonna go from pissing and moaning about XP vs Vista to Vista vs Windows 7, just wait and see...from what I've heard Windows 7 is pretty much a retuned Vista in a sense...so might as well get used to it.
That's my 2 cents, alright folks flame on!
