Hi, Support for XP has ended so I'm getting Windows 7, but I am not sure if I should go for the 32 or 64 bit version. Cons (for 64-bit): Most of my system is 7 years old, and I have a feeling the 32-bit version will give me fewer problems with hardware compatibility, drivers, and so on. Do you agree with that? (Here I have to mention that I am unwilling to flash the bios at any point - the risk of my destryoing the computer is too great). On the other hand, I know the 64-bit version is faster (and my CPU is 64-bit). Also, I am wondering if a 32-bit system will have problems running new programs, games, etc. I hope to use the PC for at least a year or two. Thanks for reading and for any input you might have. You can see my system specs in my signature.
