Thanks...

32-bit would only hold around 3gb of ram...

64-bit would hold much more...

Not all software developers are writing for Vista 64 bit yet. It will take some time

Thanks for the link Garmanma... :huh:

There's not too many software programs to install for a 64 bit, that I can find.

I'm in no hurry, to find any. I'm retired like you... :huh:
