First of all, I'd like to know; Is it bad to format your computer more than so-often? If so, why and what are the consequences?
My second question is: I've got a computer that has 4 gigs of RAM. I've been told that I shouldn't install the normal version of Windows XP because it won't detect and use all of these 4 RAM and it'll be a waste, so to install Windows 64 bit instead, so I did when I purchased the PC. (I have the Windows XP, and my brother had the 64 bit, so I used his disc since he doesn't have a PC anymore.)
Now I'm considering formatting my PC and am wondering, is it true that I should only install Windows XP 64 bit or can I just download any Windows XP and it'll work just fine and my 4 gigs of ram won't go to waste?
Thank you in advance,
P.S; I don't want Vista. ^_^
