Howzit going? Remember me? I talked to you a few months back when you were having some problems with your laptop...
Anyhow, about your question.... Ironically enough, about 3 hours ago, I was just reading about the 64 Bit version of XP in the latest PC World Magazine. In the review it said that Drivers were very buggy. The overall assessment by PC World was to wait until Longhorn (aka Windows Vista) comes out next year.
on a somewhat similar note, I can kind of relate to this...back in December, I decided to upgrade my system to the New PCI-Express Boards. I had to upgrade several components and in the end it cost me close to $1000. I am currently on my new PCI-Express System and I have to say that it was not worth it. The technology is still just to new...over time, I'm sure the Drivers will get better and PCI-Express will be a lot faster than the older motherboards...but at this point, if I could do it all over again. I would have waited.
Getting the newest thing isn't always the best idea....It almost seems like you become a guinea pig for the manufacturer....
Just my two cents.
