COngrats, I'm posting from my x64 install as well. =) Though mine didn't take 7 hours to install, it did take 2 months to get up the nerve.

I just got mine set up a few days ago also. Noticed a definite speed increase although I also upgraded from an IDE hard drive to SATA:). Only gripe I have is that I'm not happy with the current selection of virtual drive software. Daemon Tools should be out any day though.

I'll probably go 64-bit only once Vista hits Beta 2 or RC. The A64 4000+ is still sitting there in its packaging.
Well whatcha waiting for? Break out the a64 already.

what benefits are there to xp64 over 32? my friend has a 64-bit machine but hasn't been in a hurry to get xp64 because he shouldn't see any gain in 3d apps (games :p), right?

As far as I am aware only Far Cry has a 64 bit version so far.

As for anything else I can't really comment on speed differences since my old computer was really old, so everything seems to run much faster now :)

Well you say that but Photoshop CS2 has special optimisations.
I also reckon World of warcraft is 64bit as it doesn't have that *32 in processes.

That is very interesting.

I have a copy of Xp64 but was forced to go back to 32 until Rhapsody decides to make their software support xp64 :-/. Hopefully that won't take too long so I can give WoW a try again.

When I first built my 64 3500 I loaded windows 64 bit OS on it ( that was about 6 months ago) and I could not get my scanner to work, trying to set up raid and SATA drives was a nightmare plus several programs threw wobblies.
So it was back to 32 bit and no problems.

That was six months ago hehe...

I had no problem with RAID on my nforce 4 sli board, and the only application that does not work for me is Rhapsody.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
