    With my current setup i was running XP Pro. i just upgraded to XP pro 64bit because ive read that it is supposed to utilize memory and everything else better making the computer more efficiant. well after installing my computer is totally not as fast as before, it has a quater second lag to open programs when it was instant on normal XP. Anyone else having this problem?

    driver support is not so hot on xp64, right now... And actually, it takes longer to address 64bit memory space... when compared to 32bit.

    Yeah, as jollyogre said, driver support sucks... at this point, it might be best to just wait for Vista to go 64bit at this point.
