32Bit vs 64Bit Gaming!

I wanna run windows Boot Camp it will only be used to play some games that currently aren't on mac. Will the 2GB ceiling on the 32Bit damage gaming, or will the vast majority of games run fine?

Any opinons or experiences would be appreciated!!!

It really depends what games you want to play.

Why are you still using 32-bit?

I don't know much about gaming tbh, but I think you should get 64-bit anyway.

32-bit is dead :P

Literally 10 minutes ago, I installed 64-bit Java for Minecraft (On a Mac, Minecraft doesn't go to 64-bit by default for some reason) and I get 100fps on highest settings and 300fps on lowest settings.

I do most of my gaming on the PC (Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit), but I haven't come across very many games that run natively in 64-bit.

Even the big new titles all install 32-bit executables.
