Getting a new PC: 32 bits still an option?
show user profile  Manolo
Because I plan to renew my "main" pc, I use it 85% for 3dmax modeling & vray rendering, 10% photoshop, 3% autocad, 2% gaming. Zillion options out there, so I'd like to know if I should rule 32 bits processors out. Or not at all. Around 2000 - 2500 US before monitors and external stuff.

Thanks a lot for your opinions,

Cheers,

Manolo

You should definitely rule 32-bit processors out. I mean, they're ancient by now... every decent CPU out there nowadays is 64-bit, including the Core 2s, Xeons, Pentium Ds, Opterons, Semprons, Phenoms, Turions... basically, everything worth buying.

I recommend the Core 2 Quad Q6700. It got a 50% price cut today - you should be able to find it for around $250. Best CPU for the money you can get, hands down.

even if your using 32 bit apps, but you multi-task a lot then 64bit os is great, something like games it won't matter since they don't multi-task well.
