Otherwise, why do you need 64-bit computing? Unless you do corporate sized database crunching or heavy duty video editing (like on a Hollywood level) then it's really just a waste of money right now. The market is very new and prices will eventually drop.
Driver and software support is not up to snuff yet on a wide scale. So, any problems you have will be very dicey in resolving. Last I checked Logitech drivers and Dell monitors were a no-show for compatibility.
I'm just your average joe, so I'm waiting it out at least for a year to let the industry catch up to 64-bit and to let everyone else work out all the bugs for me.
But it's only one man's opinion.
I seemed like a really good deal. $550 for:
3200+ AMD 64 processor
A bunch of good software
160 GB Hard drive
DVD+/- RE 16x burner
512 MB DDR "dual channel" memory (RAM I think)
Basic Printer and Monitor
and some other stuff, I you want to know so you can go to a store and get a comparable deal or for any other reason, PM me and I will give you receipts and details
I was looking toward the future. The next Windows OS will be 64 bit based. I haven't had problems yet but I'm sure I don't use my computer for all the things you guys do.
I bought some expensive graphics card that allows me to do the dual monitors
So clutch for player comparisons .

Me too. I hope my new stuff works out.
