MSKB 929605 32 or 64 bit
Hi,

My PC has 4GB installed and the chipset only supports 4GB; so both 32
and 64 bit OSs see the same amount of memory here as per the MSKB.

In that situation, with approx 3.15GB to play with, would 64 or 32 bit
Vista be faster or smoother or better in any way. Not too concerned
about driver comparability issues or anything else at the moment.

TIA.

Cheers,

Hi,

As the chief reason for using x64 is for the additional memory capacity and
data path width to run 64-bit applications, there's no reason for you to
bother with it. Niether has less overhead, so neither will run smoother than
the other.
