So NForce4 has full support? (I'm guessing so since you have an SLI board)

The only thing I'm not sure will work would be my TV Wonder PCI, so I may need to wait a little bit.

nice try what? yes my board is fully supported, just needed to install the x64 chipset driver gigabyte has on there website

and so far my hauppauge pvr 500 tv card doesn't work either, the regular win xp drivers don't work

so far alcohol 120% also doesn't install, at least the non online activated version doesn't, i think driver support will take off once x64 hits store shelfs later this month

We've told you numerous times, not to brag about your warez.. or where you get it from.

If you want to talk about the 64 bit version of Win XP fine.. just don't brag about how you downloaded it from alt.im.an.idiot

I tried it and it was faster but no drivers for either of my printers yet. R300 and the canon 960. That was a month ago though, maybe Epson and Canon will release the drivers now?

AFAIK, XP64 is not, and will never be, retail.

aww i see what your saying now, but if you think, how hard did amd market there x64 processors to the public

people are going to want to use that extra cpu flag

unless they do just give some kind of free upgrade weather it be cut-down or full upgrade to 64 bit windows

they could just sell an upgrade for dirt cheap, its better then not selling it in stores at all

but when was the last time microsoft sold an OS dirt cheap

yet another side note, i just bought a new Mossberg 500 12gauge pistol grip shotgun w/heat shield just like this one: ($250 new)
