If your processor is bit, you won’t have a choice. But with half of the L2 cache, the performance picture is bound to be much more interesting than just a regular clock bump. While I don’t disagree with this comment, for most people, what LamarB said holds true.

But if you want to use it for internet browsing you should probably keep XP. However, especially with older video cards, you’ll probably not be able to do an 3D acceleration, so if you want to watch videos even as simple as youtube, the experience will be much worse than in XP where it’ll have the drivers to hand off such stuff to the GPU. I have one IE window and Outlook running with a few background items like AV and I am using almost 2GB of RAM Note that Windows 7 will have a many drivers “built in” so you may want to try the install if that is possible and see what happens.
That being said, let’s see how it competes Post as a guest Name. Also get more RAM.

Is bit version much faster comparing to bit version? Were we too tied up in the higher end desktop processors and the dual core migration to pay attention to AMD’s brand new budget line? This means you would either have to disabled that security feature which defeats the purpose of using x64 operating system or use the x86 version which allows unsigned drivers to be used.

In my experience, Windows 7 will run on older hardware about as fast as XP does.

Also, bit is entirely dependent on your processor. Even better value then I guess.
With an on-die memory controller, the Socket Semprons can get away with having relatively small L2 caches, since their main memory access latencies are very low to begin with. And we thought the mainstream CPU race had slowed down. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.
So if you’re simply using this as mpbile word processor or a file server, you’ll probably be OK. Einsteins Grandson 4 11 You can use 32 bit apps on 64 Bit OS but not all will be happy.
