    Thats good then. I dont know why people wouldnt go with X64. I mean it makes everything run better and faster and Ive not had a compatability problem at all. Sure some drivers are a little harder to find but it all works out in the end. Im not just saying its faster because its suppose to. I have compared side by side Vista 32 and 64 bit and Windows 7 and its way more efficient. Plus more FPS in games so yeah. I just cant wait for windows 7.

    Now for your problem, I did a quick google and there are plenty of people running Vista both 32 and 64 bit versions on the mother board with the same CPU. I sumise that your compatability issues arise from a more sinister source, of which I dont know. But Id be really trying to get to the bottom of it. Forget vista just install windows 7. Possibly try a different ram? or just 1 stick. And It wouldnt be the first time this week that ive seen a dead 8800/9800GT causing blue screens. For instance, I had/have an 8800GT and no matter what I tried, in only one game it BSOD all the time randomly in XP no matter how many times I reinstalled it did it. Installed Vista 32 and have never seen a blue screen again. Then that card died after 3 months, they sent me a new one which has gone just over a year and now pretty much taken a big crap and wont do 3d stuff much now. So I got a HD4850 and holy crap, im like wtf was I thinking with NVIDIA. ATI are seriously much better. But I know its all money and it doesnt grow on trees. Im basically just saying that its possible you have a dodgy Video card and it would be the 3rd one this week ive seen with similar symptoms. I could run any video card stress test there is on the internet without any problems but soon after running Crysis, Fallout 3 and the like it would artifact out on me and most of the time crash with the blabla NVidiasucks.dll has stopped responding and has sucksessfully recovered crap and I tell ya i was going bannans with that error, I think i nearly killed google trying to find an answer.

    Well, I've tryed using one or the other sticks of RAM, from installing Vista to the first BSOD (that's one of the first things the Microsoft tech guy sugested). And my RAM din pass a 24 hours Memtest session without errors. About the BSOD, the only time when it happened while in a game was when playing Counter Strike 1.5. In no other games I have had this problem, and I did play some of them just for testing. Also, the BSOD did not occured when using stress programs (like orthos, prime, linx, occt, furmark, 3dmark). It simply appears randomly, most of the time when the PC is at idle (i would find the BSOD in the morning, I don't power off the PC at night, or when I went away from home when coming back).
    Oh, and in Windows 7 it happens exactly like in Vista.
    And the strangest thing is that on XP it never BSOD'd on me, not in 5 or 6 months of using it. Not on x86 or x64 (which, unfortunatelly i had to give up because of the same CS 1.5 reporting it had -18MB of RAM and needed at least 16MB to run, hilarious, isn't it?). I know, nobody plays 1.5 anymore, but 1.6 sux and source.. I simply can't get used to it.
    I'm really out of ideas and don't know what else to try. I'm begining to think I'm the only one having this issue as I can't find any infos about it.
