    i think i'm going to get home premium for my new rig. but should i get 32bit or 64bit?

    my new build is
    asus maximus formula se x38 mb
    e6750
    2 gigs of ram probably crucial lanparty ddr2 800
    3x74gig raptors in raid0
    not sure about gfx yet but probably x2950 or whatever they name it

    i like xp, i know how it works but i want dx10
    is there any benefitt of 64bit over 32?

    If your hardware/software is supported by 64 bit there is no reason why you shouldnt use it.
