  1. Hello again everyone,
    I have a 32 bit Windows XP professional and I was wanting to know if I could make an upgrade to the 64-bit version of XP. Would it be worth it? Or should I upgrade to Windows Vista?:confused:

    Why would you want to upgrade to 64 bit. Its apparent that you dont have any hardware at all that would even benefit. ie' more than 3 Gigs of ram.

    And I definately wouldnt upgrade to vista with your system specs.

    Along with supersmashbrada's remarks, another thing to keep in mind would be that XP x64 has lots of problems and support is severely lacking for it, compared to Vista x64.

    This is true. I had to upgrade to vista 64 because microsoft doesnt make drivers for my Zune, funny though because they make the Zune as well.

    Alright, I just wasn't sure whether or not to do anything with it or if I needed to.

    Thanks for the reply
