    so im just asking is there any sence to buy a win xp pro x64 edition?
    From what xp i will get more power (faster loading, using and etc.)
    xp pro or xp pro x64?

  2. Depends on what you plan to do with Windows XP Pro x64. The big benefits of
    course will not be realized by the consumer or enthusiast, but by persons in
    technical environments who use memory and mathematically intensive
    applications such as databases. Windows XP Professional x64 provides the
    highest levels of performance and scalability for Digital Content Creation,
    Computer Mechanical Design & Analysis and for Financial & Data Analysis. So,
    Windows XP Professional x64 is definitely not an operating system for the
    average Windows user who is doing basic stuff such as browsing the net or
    sending e-mails and writing one page documents in Word. But it is likely
    that by the end of this year, any PC purchased will be 64 bit enabled, which
    does not necessarily mean you are ready for a 64 bit OS. But it does give
    the user a sense of comfort knowing the capability is there ready to be
    taken advantage of by a largely supported 64-bit OS.

    The true beneficiaries are the technical ones in the technical environments
    who require the massive amounts of power this platform provides. Within the
    next 2 to 3 years 64 bit computing supported hardware and software should be
    more available than it is today and users will better take advantage of it
    with the appropriate applications written for the consumer market, so far
    that is not available.

    For users who have standardized on 64-bit hardware who do plan on migrating
    to Window XP Professional x64, backup, there is no upgrade path from a
    32-bit Windows XP or Windows 2000. You also cannot start the installation
    from within 32 bit Windows, you are required to boot off the CD. Users can
    do dual installation however with 32 bit Windows, during installation ensure
    you have F6 Drivers ready for your Hard disk to be installed if it’s a non
    supported RAID/SATA hard disk, (this is where PlanetAMD64 comes in).

    Unless you have 64bit applications, the answer is a clear no, imho. And
    even with 64bit apps you will only see a significant different with more
    than 4 GB of RAM.

    Just have a look at all the driver issues people have with the x64
    edition. If you think that it is still worth the marginal performance
    increase, then go ahead. But make sure to test the trial version first,
    before committing your money.

  4. Yes, the trial is always recommended:

    Because it not run faster and use more memory and CPU ressources, and
    many peripherals are not supported, the answer is clearly NO.

    Anyway, if you are a tech fanatic or use specials 64 bits (Wich one),
    you go with it.

    But download first the trial version before buy
