Which to get?
XP not good enough for my daughter
Supports 4GB+ of memory, runs WCG faster (a little over 10%), and I wouldn't be surprised if before too long there were apps that were only x64
Even if you dont have 4GB+ RAM id say x64 as well just so the CPU takes advantage of the OS and isnt held back by a 32 bit OS.
Well. to date I have never had more than 2 gig and got by fine.
Planned build would have 2 gig
Appreciating the feedback
There's a thanks button for that
Lol, I knew you'd sulk.
Oh alright then....sheesh
Yeah, no need to go x86 at this point in time. It used to be that everyone hated it because of the lack of program support, but most programs do support 64-bit nowadays. Along with the fact that it lets you use a lot more ram, it's a no-brainer.
+1, there's no reason to stay at 32bit. I have yet to come across a program that doesn't run (except those really really old ones).
Why is this in the WCG forum? Is she gonna be crunching?
Judging by who the OP is, more than likely
Wouldn't get built if she wasn't crunching
LOL, told yah
Lol..yeah I cant see any other reason to build rigs
As for the OS, I went W7 x64 on my last three builds, just because I could, even though I only run 2GB in my crunchers.But at least you can always upgrade in the future.
x64 all the way. There is no reason to stay with just 2gb of ram especially with how cheap it is anymore.
Thanks guys~64 it is
