I've been thinking about purchaseing windows vista 64. I use my PC for mainly playing video games but also video editing, picture editing etc. I keep hearing that this is not a good way to go but no one gives me any info on why other than "it slows down game performance". I heard from a tech guy on a video game forum that it use to be this way, but it was because of the drivers, not Vista it's self. Now [he says] that the drivers have caught up and it isn't an issue anymore.
I understand that it needs quite a bit of RAM to run but I'm pretty sure I could rock it with my hardware. If I don't like it, can I revert back to XP?
