Just the opposite here .. Lovin win 7 but like any OS needs leaned up to the bare
essentials......


I have been using XP32 for 2D AM, 01, 03, 05

06, PCM05 & Vantage on win 7 .....

But am rethinking how I approach this now

Kal it will be brutal updating drivers on 8 OS's .........

Yeah it looks as though you would be better off with XP on 2D's still and Vista 32 on 3D's. I can't believe XP came in last on Aquamark.

Yah I always thought AM3 was all about XP too. I guess the enhanced 3d engine in Vista really makes up the difference though

I'm used to it already, been running multi-boots since UT2004 days. (Which ran way faster/smoother in XP64)

Question

what is good?
i am really confused right now
now i am doing super pi is that mean v64 is the way to go?
on some of the tests like 3dmark05 the 32 bit os is higher than it's 64 os, but if i got like 4+GB of ram 32bit os is not gonna read then how is that gonna be higher than 64?

i am running 7-64 super pi at 8min 28sec
is that gonna be higher if i swich to v-64?

32bit OSes tend to clock a bit higher than 64 bit because you are not stressing a CPU as hard.

XP is this Superpi choice, although you are talking less than a tenth of second improvement. So it is up to you what OS you want to use. If you are trying to get every last ounce of performance, run a multi boot setup
