    Ok guys, I have an Athlon 64 and I'm really tempted by the new beta microsoft released of Xp 64. Is it worth at this point in time to actually try it? Will I be able to get drivers for everything I need? Will I see a difference? Will all my current apps work (most importantly Counter Strike)?

  3. i dont think so, i dont get it why does everyone wanna install xp64, there is always someone making a new post or asking somewhere if they should install it and we end up saying no to them, ohzopants the drivers are all 32-bits applications, xp64 is a 64-bit operating system, this is windows not os/400 you have to wait for all the applications to be written in 64-bit, they wont just addapt to the changes, and might not work so stick with normal windows xp
