hi,,, as mark says 64 uses the full 4gb of ram if installed,,, but is more ram hungry than 32,,, which is a bit of a catch 22,,, one way round it i suppose is stick 8gb in the 64bit version,,, which obviously you cant do with 32bit,,,
good luck. Hey figgis & Mark, you two are the biggest responders here, Thanks. I will wait to use the 64 bit disk that came with my Vista Ultimate. I have 2 gigs of Corsair ram and my Vista is very fast and smooth. I also run Linux Unbutu Ibex in a 30 gig partition thru wubi installer. * gigs of Ram seems like overkill?
