    I wouldn't pay any more for it, but it's certainly worth using. It's the only OS I use on my Athlon 64 system and it works just fine with everything.

    I had windows 64 bit on my computer, but I eventually took it off. Everything seemed to run really fast...games were smooth. I didn't like that I couldn't use my webcam though. (How am I gonna make my money without my xxx shows? jk) Other than that, all programs ran normally for the most part.

    I might put it back on, i'm not sure.

    I say get it and run a dual boot setup with both, that way anything tha tdoesn't like XP64 can still work on your other OS. I plan on doing this myself. I have wanted XP64 for a long time as I hear it runs better and applications are slightly faster and it also has better memory managament.
