Why on a modern/new system would you not choose Vista 64bit?

I assume at least it runs a bit faster?

You wouldn't, unless there is some obscure software/hardware critical to your PC usage that doesn't work in 64-bit.

Not really...

The only real use of the 32bit platform would be certain hardware/software or peripherals that would only work on the 32bit platform.

Oh... What's the point of it then?
Primarily that you get to use more memory.

What is the point of 32-bit over 64-bit is the question and the answer for most building modern rigs, is nothing.

From an article I read, Vista 32bit loads up in nearly have the time of 64bit :eek:
