    Hi group!
    I wonder if I can use Win XP (32 bits) on a main board with a 64 bits
    processor.
    Are there gone be any trouble with "old" programs like MS Office 2000 / XP
    and other win 32 bits based programs?

    Best Regards
    Abbyss

    Yes, the programs will not take advantage of the 64 bit registry
    capacity of the new mb and cpu, but it will be backwards compatible to
    the 32 bit OS and programs.

    It depends. The Itanium from Intel won't run the 32bit version
    worth crap ("What? 2GHz? It runs like a 486!"), but the Opterion from AMD
    will run it at full speed.

    Again, depends on the processor.
