I have been using 64-bit on all the machines I own that can run it. While the features are the same as the 32-bit versions, it’s the ability to fully utilize all the capabilities of your machine is what I love.
Now many people ask me should I run 64-bit Windows on my computer? There is really at this stage (who knows for the future?) only two things to consider when making this decision.
- How much RAM do you have? (This is the most important)
- Do you have a multi-core or 64-bit processor?
If you have 4GB of RAM in your machine, and lets face it many of the newer machines quite often do, apart from a lot of the lower end smaller machines, then you definitely want to go 64-bit as the architecture of that OS will fully utilize the memory you have.
On all my machines, where I can, I run 64-bit, and have had no problems from applications for business to games… love it.
