    Have anyone used both OS with its Mac?
    Is there a noticeable difference between them?
    Which one is better for game play?

    Never tried it on a Mac but I have on my desktop PC. Only benefit really is its ability to address more RAM (ie past approx 3.2gig) so unless you got like 4 gigs of RAM I wouldnt bother. Your games will run better under the 32bit version.

    I don't think there are drivers for 64-bit windows, so some functionality will be gone.

    Not some functionality, all of it. I first tried the x64 version, it installed just fine and everything, but I could not even put the proper video drivers on. Later on I tried the normal 386 version and it works surprisingly well, with the exception of clicking about two hundred times to "Continue Anyways".
