    I wanna know about the Operating Systems that Use 64 Bit Processing.

    And i would like to know the difference between 32 Bit and 64 Bit Processing

    I am planning on Installing a 64 Bit XP Professional for my Office PC

    i hear it has a higher RAM capacity Support.

    Does this software, support the softwares that are run presently
    on the 32 Bit version of the Windows XP

    I am using XP SP2,
    since it is the best OS for the Purpose of Office Functions.

    The difference between 64-bit and 32-bit processors goes beyond just higher Memory Allocation capability. 64-bit processors have 64 registers, so they can process faster provided the OS as well as the software is capable of using those 64 registers.

    I wouldn't recommend 64-bit Windows XP. If you have below 4 GB RAM, I'd recommend you stick to Windows XP 32-bit.

    If you are going to upgrade to more RAM, then switch to Windows 7 64-bit. Windows XP 64 bit is not too stable and is riddled with driver troubles.

    I've used almost every brands of mobile. :yes2:

    And i hate Symbian OS given the OS choices i have in the market now. Go for Android man! Or if you need a qwerty keyboard then go for Motorola milestone 2.

    If you're going for a DSLR, make sure you save at least 15-20k for a decent lens. DSLRs are meant to be used with a lens(telephoto or macro). Without it, it isn't going to be a huge difference over regular cameras.

    I'm a photography enthusiast myself, so if you wanna go for a DSLR camera, first you have to decide if you would like to use it for in-motion photography or portrait/landscape pictures, cuz the shutter speed would make a hell lot of difference. First you have to decide if you want to go for Nikon or Canon, personally from experience I prefer Nikon over Canon and the lenses have played a huge part in me making that choice.
    To balance the two, cheapest bet is the D90 which would cost you roughly 50K for the kit, (a basic VR lens 18-105)
    but you can also choose D5100 (not so good for motion shots) which would cost roughly 30K for the kit (18-55 VR lens)
    Do not go for D3100/D3000 they are simply not worth it.
