      You don't need 64 bit Windows to take advantage of 64 bit 'technology' - you
      only need it for 64 bit software programs, which are quite rare. Also the 64
      bit drivers needed for 64 bit Windows can be hard to find.

      Makes alot more sense to me to stick with regular Win XP Pro, and upgrade to
      Vista sometime after the first SP release. The current 64 bit Windows is a
      dead end road, IMO.

      Furthermore, you will need to contact each hardware manufacture whose
      product you plan to purchase to find out if they have existing drivers for
      64 bit technology. Remember the system components work in synergy; it is the
      sum of the parts working together that make the system. If your operating
      system is 32 bit, you will never take advantage of 64 bit software.
      Likewise, if your op system is 64 bits and all your software drivers are 32
      bit, do you see the problem?
