Yeah, your AMD is pimping.
I'm running XP Office or Pro or whatever the one above home version is. I can't remember, it came no extra cost due to some sort of deal.

If you got money to burn then go for it.

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.

p.s. for what it's worth, Win98SE will always have a warm place in my heart as the uber gaming platform. Used it for years.

Until Longhorn is released, I think you will regret buying a 64 bit. There will be some software compatibility issues from what I understand.
