When all the bugs have been worked out on the dual-cores and consist of more than one core on a single die. ANd when virtualization tech comes in. WIndows Vista w/sp2 and probably DDR3 for memory, along with SATA II as the new standard. ALso when agp is completely replaced by pci-express.
I have spent a lot of time and energy upgrading my computer. I installed an Intel 3 ghz cpu with HT. I have 2 new 120gb hard drives, 2 gb of DDR RAM, 256 graphics card, all in one printer, 2 dvd burners and 2.1 speaker system.
I love my computer and I am proud of myself for being able to put it together, but I realize that 64 bit computing for the consumer is becoming more and more real everyday.
My computer is running xp but it's 32 bit. I was wondering if anybody could tell me when you think 32 bit computing will be competely obsolete? I really dont want to have to buy another another motherboard and cpu supporting 64 bit yet because I have spend a lot of money on my current computer. Well I hope I didnt sound too weird here LOL.
