I see a lot of guys sayin' they have win7 64-bit or 32-bit
but what is exactly the difference between the two??!! and which one is best for pc games and pcsx2?
I really recommend 64-Bit nowadays, if you have a CPU that supports it. However that is not a problem, only very old Athlon XP/Semprons and Pentiums/Celerons do not have 64-Bit support. 64-Bit biggest advantage is the ability to use more than 3,xxGB of RAM. 32-Bit OS can only manage up to 3,xxGB of RAM. However stay away from XP 64-Bit version, it's totally half-assed. Vista 64 and Win7 64 are fine though.
Intel i5 3450
Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X OC
8GB DDR3-1333 RAM
Sandisk Ultra Plus 256GB
Seagate 7200.14 1TB x2
Enermax Triathlor 450W PSU
Using the same PC, I really noticed a difference between using DirectX9 and DirectX11...So I think using Windows 7 is better...Maybe I'm wrong and it's the same, but untill someone tell me that I'm wrong... xD
Maybe you are right, I only tested one game (Naruto Accel 2) because I just wanna play that one, and believe me, it works better...
Yeah, my english sucks ._______.

If you don't have more than 3GB of memory, and you already have a 32-bit OS, stick with that.
If you are buying a new OS, you may want to go 64-bit in case you do add more RAM, and also because Windows 7 will be the last 32-bit OS from Windows apparently, and if you want to be able to upgrade to a future OS, you'll need to have a 64-bit OS already installed.
Windows 7 is definitely a recommended OS if you are planning to buy.
