So, does that mean that I can use either windows XP or windows 64 XP on my computer, or should I stick with the regular windows xp?

I personally would stick with the 32-bit version of windows, just because there is so much more support for it, and when I tried the 64-bit version on my computer it was a paint to get drivers for it all.

Do you have a 64-bit processor repairman? If not then you wouldn't be able to use it.

It depends on your level of computer experience, your desire for bleeding edge technology, and the PITA factor of not being able to find drivers for all the devices you may want to install. Before making the choice, investigate the drivers for all the devices that you want on your system to see if 64 bit drivers are available.
