[quote="“Guest7"”]I don’t know anything about Linux distributions.
But I do have a question about computers, for anyone to answer if they know.
As I am still not decided what to purchase, for a new desktop computer.
What about 32-bit or 64 bits, for using a new computer in the next couple years—
Do I need a 32bit or 64bit computer, especially for gaming and music?
FYI–Since XP is old now, there are LOTS of great deals on laptops, notebooks, netbooks, and desktops, for new computers that already have Windows XP installed. I have been looking for a while now, online. If I hadn’t read in this Forum (from Agustin), that Microsoft will not be supporting the XP system anymore (officially)—I might of bought another XP type. Glad I didn’t.
32bit or 64bit, does it matter, and which one?
Added later—Did some reading. Looks like 64bit is the way to go, as 32bit is going out of style.[/quote]
yeah 64 bit is the way to go, especially for gaming. just make sure you get a processor that will make use of 64-bit.
my cheap little laptop, came installed with windows 7 64 bit. and i have just a cheap little AMD bottom of the line type processor, found in many budget notebooks. if you would have asked me before, i would have said that it wouldn’t even install, but, it did, and they marketed it like i was getting something awesome. I reinstalled linux on it anyway, and now im running windows again as well, lol wanted to play some games.
