    Has anybody compared gaming under Win7 32 vs 64. Im not that thrilled with the performance on Battlefield 2, but am currently running win 32. I wonder if 64 and its ability to use more RAM will help with gaming experience. Also, I've seen many threads on trying to update the Nvidia drivers, but not many responses on whether it helped much, considering what had to be done just to get the drivers updated....is it worth it.

    I wish Apple would address the outdated drivers.

    Definitely 64-bit unless there is some issues with driver (could someone clarify that?). 4GB will definitely help in games and if you ever want to upgrade it to 8GB, 64-bit is a must

    I've thought about updating to 8gb, but haven't heard anybody say they've experienced an improvement when it comes to gaming.

    Having a system with 4GB of ram or more means this is a no brainer question. You use 64bit. 32bit Windows cannot recognize all 4GB of ram.
