I found a person with these specs Windows 7 32-bit, 2.2 Ghz Core 2 Duo and Nvidia GeForce 8600M GT. He'd probably be able to play the top three steam games with no issues with those specs, I wonder why he sticks with 32-bit. Though I don't know how much physical ram he has in that system.

 

And there is absolutely zero reason that he should STILL be running an x32 version of Windows on that hardware other than not wanting to crossgrade - that hardware CAN run the x64 flavor of Windows 7 - unless he has LESS than 1 GB of RAM.

Anyone who votes for "X64 only without WOW(32-bit support) " is ignorant of how Windows works and obviously doesn't care to run any popular apps.

Kind of a mystery why we aren't stepping forward to 128-bit by now ...

 

Finding that 18 quintillion address limit a bit too restrictive are we? :rolleyes:

For me yes, my time machine needs to load up a large set of data at the same time to do fast calculations to navigate the timestream.
