Hmm, just what I was trying to point out earlier. 2 GB RAM is not much for 64 bit, you should have 3 GB for 64 bit to run smoothly.

Well johngetter just used the word 'lagg', I wonder what Salmon Trout will think about that!

It's not lag unless  there is a network involved

Sorry Cityscape, Salmon Trout is far from the only person who dislikes people using words incorrectly.

You should have more then 2GB for 32-bit, as well.

The 64-bit editions don't consume any more RAM then the 32-bit versions.

The main desktop I use is from 2007. It has 2 GB RAM, in fact the motherboard does not support more than two. 2 GB runs everything fine.

That's crazy. My 32 bit desktop has had 2 GB RAM for years and run fine. I wouldn't get more Ram for it because there is no need. 2 GB is fine for a 32 bit system.

But I bet you that if I switch to 64 bit my performance would go down. Because 64 does want more RAM.

I mean, i terms of 32-bit VISTA and windows 7. 1GB, or even 512MB, is fine for XP. It's important to realize that while 32-bit systems often run windows XP, Windows XP's x64 edition is not nearly as popular or widely available as the Vista or windows 7 versions.

No. It doesn't.

64 bit O.S. does not NEED more ram than 32 bit O.S. , it just has the ability to USE more ram.
