    already downloaded...finding a spare HDD now :D

    only problem is, ATI are NOT releasing drivers for it, untill it becomes retail...so ive heard. So you get the "standard" windows ones i think and thats it...Nvidia already have 64bit drivers :(

      Aha!!! You know what that means! The tides are turning again! Nvidia rules, ATI drools! or something...

          errr

          if you have an Athlon 64 CPU, AMD FX51 or Opteron CPU....which i doubt you have since its just been released and surely you'd know already.


          I just installed this on a spare HDD and i must say im impressed... the last "beta" MS OS i tried failed really badly i think it was Win98 beta or something.

          This thing boots so fast my TFT doesnt show anything as its still "warming up" the pixels....

          Couple of things though...
          1: cant do much atm, ive unplugged my other HDD's just incase it currupted them.

          2: No creative sound drivers, although my onboard sound IS supported

          3: No ATI support for WinXP 64bit yet... the standard ones suck (50-70% slower)

          4: no themes with this version (although you can crack it aparently)

          5: Need something to tests this... UT2004 demo should have a 64bit version so ive heard...cant wait. Now if only ATI pulled there finger out... funny huh, Nvidia have new drivers out already...grrr

                  I bear zero allegiance to any company. I simply go with what is the best at the time of purchase...You know that... ;)

                  Still waiting for Socket 939 and the 2nd Generation of Athlon 64 motherboards. I never jump on an initial release product.

                      How do 32bit apps run on this new OS, Adam? Are they every bit as fast as running them on a 32bit OS using the same hardware?

                        dunno...... its a bit hard for me to change HDD's around with all these pipes and stuff... Ive yet to run WinXP 64bit with my other 2 "main" drives plugged in....

                        plus, theres no creative sound support and ATI's default Win drivers suck ASS...and they wont release any others till WinXP 64 hits the shelves.

                        not to mention i have little time to mess with it atm
