    I'm running 64 bit Windows 7 Ultimate and am wondering if I should downgrade to 32 bit because I've heard I would get a better performance. Should I? My PC specs are in my sig.

    Thanks, Jason

    stick with 64bit then if you ever want to increase actual RAM over 4gb then windows will show it however 32bit doesnt show more than 4gb.

    stick with 64 then world is your oyster for upgrading spec

    Actually 64bit is actually the better performer, because it will accept more memory for usage than 32bit.

    Running 32bit when you can run 64bit would be like driving a Lamborghini and never going above second gear!

    I also found 64bit to be a lot more stable than 32bit due it using signed drivers :)
