    64 bit motherboards (XP SR2)

    Dear loungers,

    I have a 64 bit motherboard I installed some time ago. At the time I did not install 64 bit windows because I was advised that it was not always stable and consistent. However I fell like this should be corrected and it may even be that 32 bit Windows with a 64 bit chip impacts performance (?). My question is if I do this what, if anything, needs to be done with all my applications?

    thank you.............................. liz

    There are very few applications that will really benefit from having a 64 bit address space. Unless you are running something incredibly memory intensive - like SQL Server - then I don't think you will get any advantage.

    To answer the specific question that you asked, you will need to get new 64-bit applications to replace the ones you are currently using. There are very few of these around.
