Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Windows 7 - 64 or 32 Bit

Hey guys, I've been contemplating about building a new computer for myself, namely for gaming. I've decided to take the leap on Windows 7, but the question I now face is whether I should go for the 32 bit or 64 bit version. I've been out of the loop on PC gaming for the longest while, and I've been hearing the worst stories about 64 bit compatibility issues. On the other hand, I've also heard that 64 bit allows you to expand beyond 4GB of ram while 32 bit limits you to 4GB?

It would be great if you guys could give me a nudge in the right direction. If this thread is supposed to be in the technology sub forum, I apologize and hope the moderators can move it to the right place. Thank you in advance. <img class=" title=":mrgreen:" class="bbcode_smiley" />
