    Hi there,

    I will be building a new Intel i7 "super computer" soon, with 6GB RAM
    maybe (see below).
    Up to now I have 2 desktop machines with Windows XP Pro and two
    laptops with Windows Vista Home Premium !
    I personally don't have any problem with Vista at all but in my new
    build I am looking at either putting on Windows Vista Ultimate 32-bit
    or 64-bit.

    Basically what I need to know is is there any problems with using
    64-bit Vista ? .. mainly I am wondering will all my "usual" programs
    like Eudora (email), Agent (Newsgroup), Nero, Microsoft Money etc run
    on it ?

    Or will it be more trouble and money (because of having to re-purchase
    64-bit programs) than it is worth ?
    And in that case should I just settle for 3GB RAM, or buy the 6GB
    anyway on case of future upgrades ?

    Any help/advice would be greately appreciated !

    Thanks in advance,
