When you can get a 64-bit one now?
- cost if ur worried about that
- lack of apps that are compiled to 64 bit
I think the question should've been flipped. I see no need for 64-bit cpu's at home. Especially running Windows.
unless its 2003 server 64-bit. And even then, not at home unless you're doing programming from home for a 64-bit platform.
I see no real reason to move to 64-bit yet either
only benefit to me with 64bit processors is cheaper 32 bit ones
There really aren't any mainstream 64bit apps or games to warrant the upgrade, wait a few months for prices to come down.
Wont you need a 64-bit OS too??? What's the point??? Sounds like a waste to be...
AMD's Athlon FX-64 can run 32 bit apps, they jsut get a speed boost. I know there's a few copies of WinXP 64bit Editon floating around out there too.
Silly wabbit -- 64 is just better than 32. Just cuz!
Actually in all honesty, I work with AMD64 processors every day and they are damn quick little beasts. 64bit OS or not, its damn fast. (and trust me, XP 64bit is even faster)
mainly, the 64bit is (now) mostly for servers/buisnesses/mission critical type deals (usually running linux, as that is what the chip was designed arount). for home use and/or windows use, a 32bit is the same for less money
You keep thinking that -- excuse me, off to play some UT2K4 64bit...
