  1. Im a gamer who happens to be on a fairly tight buget. Im planning to buy a new pc within a month or two and with the release of 64-bit processors, there will soon be games designed for them. Im wondering if a 32 bit processor will be able to run 64 bit games well, if at all, or if i should put up the extra cash for a 64 bit. Thanks!

    you can rest assured that game developers will continue supporting 32 bit since it will remain the majority of systems out there for a while. and the developers are in business to make money. they arent going to limit the market for their games by ignoring the 32 bit OS's.
