I have a few questions about windows 64-bit. I have a AMD and to have a 64-bit windows would be a dream come true. Although i have herd some things about how you cannot run certain programs on it and also how it is almost a "beta". Mostly a OS just being thrown out there for Good Oll Bill to get some more money for his new OS comin out .... if you have 64 bit or know some good facts and details about it i would like to hear it ..... If it turns out to be good i would like to get it although i don't want to through my money away ....

64-bit right now isn't worth the money. There aren't any programs/software available that utilize its power. I would wait to get a 64-bit system until after Windows Vista comes out next year. By then manufacturers will have drivers available that will actually utilize the power of the system and not just make it so they 'work,' like they do now.
