Performance Tip: Upgrading to 64-bit technology – is it a good move? From the Kim Komando Show.

This blog entry was gleaned from The Kim Komando Show, a Featured Community Web site.

 

64-bit computing is going to be big. The 64-bit version of Windows will address 128 gigabytes of memory. The 32-bit version will address only 4 GB. Unfortunately, there is practically no software that takes advantage of the 64-bit systems right now. It may be prudent to wait.
