    Well.. im getting my new mobo tomorrow after the other one died just after one day with bad flash of the bios.. so.. well.. as you can see im running crossfire with HD2900XT's. will crossfire work in 64bit vista? and would i benefit something by using 64bit vista insted of 32bit vista now?

    I don't know about crossfire, but performance wise 64bit is the way to go. It can address more RAM and is theoretically faster than 32bit.

    With 4GB of memory and two cards, yes definitely go with 64-bit. Otherwise you'll see less than 3GB (I see 2.75GB with just a single GTX in XP). From what I understand Crossfire works fine in Vista as well.

    Copy that! Definetly go with Vista 64bit. For me, Vista 64bit is great, I really noticed a difference in performance by switching to 64bit and in the future programs and games will come out that support 64bit and will run faster then the 32bit versions of the programs and games.

    for me vista x64 actually was much slower than the 32bit version, it could be cuz my processor is a bit outdated now i`ll get a conroe soon and reinstall the bad boy again

    x64 deffo. I tried both and x64 does seem to be faster, and of course there's the memory addressing mentioned above.

    And x64 software is going to become more widely available
