Hi, just looking for opinions here.
I decided to buy some upgrades for my computer (a new graphics card and 2gb more RAM to be precise) and was just wondering if it would be worth making the jump to a 64bit O/S as well.
With the new RAM I'll be on 4gb which is more than my current 32bit O/S can make use of, but the Windows 7 student upgrade copy I bought several months ago has no option to install a 64bit version.
I can pick up an OEM copy of Windows 7 for £75, which should include both 32 and 64 bit versions, which I'm willing to do should the performance gain justify it. I also have a copy of Vista which I can install as 64bit, but I don't really want to go back to Vista unless I have to.
So, what so you think would be the best choice in terms or performance/cost?
Stay with Windows 7 32bit, switch to Vista 64bit or shell out £75 for Windows 7 64 bit?
