32 bit or 64 bit. The realism

So you want to buy a PC, or build one. You have a choice of an Operating system. Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit or 64 bit, whats the difference.

Well, the difference is how the PC can handle it. To run a 64 bit version, your CPU and GPU must be compatible. 64 bit machines are highly prefered by PC Gamers, Video Editors, Music Editors, Photography or Graphic Designers and Web Designers. The difference isnt as simple to notice when you look at it.

Think of a motor way, being 32 bits wide, there is more bottlenecks going to occur on your processor, thus slowing down the system even for a matter of seconds. Being 64 bits wide, these bottlenecks occur less. Meaning when your processor does slow down, you hardly relise it, because of the bottle neck being a matter of Miliseconds.

You need all the Hardware to be sutible to Support the 64 bit version, which means a Processor like an AMD Phenom II x4 or higher, or an Intel i5.

If you are thinking Random Access Memory, a 32 bit version can only recognize 4 GB, but is only able to use 3.5 GB, where if you use a 64 bit version, of say, Windows 7 Home Premium, and you want 8GB of RAM, then you can use that 8 GB of RAM. Windows 7 64 bit can use upto 128 GB, not like you will need that amount of RAM for another 25 Years atleast.

So be smart, and come ask us about the System you want to run. We can help!
