    W7 64 v 32 bit

    We are now fully W7, we have 64 bit on all desktops and only use the 32 bit version on our netbooks as they only have 1GB of ram everything else has 4GB plus, we have a gigabit backbone so the system is running very well at the moment

    Thanks for the unreal reference, I used to be quite good at that back in the day UT2004 was my game, however I was hoping to spark a debate about 32bit v 64bit windows 7 but we can stick with unreal, I prefer team deathmatch and capture the flag, my fav weapon is the minigun, the other game I used to be good at was Tom Clancy Rainbow 6 (Raven shield) I got all three packs for that game I remember at a Lan party we played it for 14 hours straight. Have a happy day all

    There's no debate these days, putting 32bit on anything unless you have to is utterly pointless

    Quake 2 was far better though! No version of Unreal ever felt like you were actually walking/running across a surface, just sort of "gliding". Never felt quite right!

    64bit = More address space
    32bit = Legacy Apps
    FPS = Motion sickness inducing vomit
    Gaming = PS3, FTW!

    Let the flame wars begin...

    64 bit on everything, no matter how little RAM, because it makes drivers & redirected shortcuts much easier. 32-bit Office still though.
