I know very little about these 64 bit OS'. I'm hoping someone can fill me in on all the details and stuff about them.

What are the pro's/con's. What's so different between 32 and 64 bit.

Will my rig run an x64 OS?

Your computer probably will but whether you can get 64-bit drivers for the hardware is another story.

why do you wanna run a 64bit system?

with your computer it actually doesnt make any sence.
i would run a 64bit system, if i would have more than 2GB RAM.

but, okay.
i heard a lot of bad things about XP 64.

Many programs wont work, you wont find drivers for it, etc.
