Wrong.

The processor can do 32bit stuff too, and works under normal Windows XP, and they outperform p4's in 32 bit applications.

Fragmatic is right. AMD 64 is a 32-bit compatible 64-bit processor. If it wasnt compatible with 32 bit OS, how could I be running Win XP on my AMD 64? Also, as Frag said, its 64-bit processing ability means that it handles 32-bit processing better than even 32-bit chips do. This is why it is such a great chip right now.

Also, when some nice 64-bit drivers get released for Win XP 64 (which, as I mentioned, is currently in a public beta, and the current driver support is rather weak) AMD 64s will perform even BETTER than they currently do with a 32-bit OS. Basically, as soon as my CPU starts to get a bit obsolete, I will start running it on Win XP 64 and hopefully be able to play catch-up a bit.

Edit: Oh, and 1024, your father is a dumbass. Make sure he is informed of this fact plz.

He's is not a dumbass, he's just misinformed/not up with the times. No need to fling around insults. He's a structural engineer, not a computer tech, so theres no need for him to keep up with the stuff.

And how much does the AMV 64 go for right now?

Not cool, electro. Why'd you have to say something like that? I'm sure you wouldn't like it if someone called you or your father a dumbass just for being misinformed. Very childish.

Anyways, I've heard nothing but awesome reviews for the Athlon 64, and with a 7 segment pipeline it runs a lot smoother. As for RAM vs. proc speed, I'd say as long as you have 2.4Ghz or higher, you're fine. Right now it's enough to run anything you need, and the money would be better spent upgrading RAM. I'm planning on picking up a new pc soon, prolly gonna forfeit the 3.4 Ghz proc for a 3.2 and upgrade the RAM to at least 1 gig, if I have enough mula.

jesus. I made that statement tongue-in-cheek. Get a sense of humor people.

I realize that most people's parents are misinformed. Hell, my mother doesnt know the difference between RAM and a Hard Drive. My dad is almost as bad.


People love to get worked up over stuff, god...
