Hi all,

I have one simple question, well i think that it's simple

I've ordered one Phenom 9700 and I would like to ask for an advice on what Windows version should I install, XP or Vista?

Thanks.

Being able to use more than 3GB of RAM? That would be the only reason to use a 64bit OS right now, IMHO...
