...and have multicores that you want to spin fully wide open. When I had
2 gigs of memory, 32bit was just peachy. With 16 gigs I'd have to be
nuts to run 32bit. Memory is cheap nowadays. I'm poor as a churchmouse,
but I couldn't pass up the bargain. You'd be hard pressed to actually
buy a 32bit motherboard today. Not that you couldn't, but why would you?
Then for about $80 US extra, install 16 gigs of ram. Ric
