    well for everyday usage (and particualrly games), teh difference is barely existant and sometimes 32-bit xp can do better.

    for some benchmarks and apps coded in 64-bit there can be an improvement tho.

    the biggest advantage of windows x64 is that can windows will have access to more physical memory.

    if the os and all your apps are coded to use 64 bits, code will run faster, and there will be a larger address space for programs.
