    There is little difference between a 64 - bit OS and a 32 - bit OS in gaming. Really, all a 64 bit does is allow you to use more than ≈ 2 gigs of RAM, that and it causes some programs to be incompatible.

    Bad grammer FTL?

    Im pretty sure games are not affected by 32 vs 64 - bit OS's. Not directly, diablo 2 should run fine on a 64 - bit OS and 32 - bit.
