Ready to buy with a 31150 budget and mostly home use with odd games. looking at Mesh Matrix 64 3000 FX or PMesh Elite 3.0 Ghz Pent 4. Confused as to whether should be getting into 64 bit processor rather than Pentium 4. Any reviews on chips or opinions please

64 bit processors are rally only useful for large networks. You will find no noticeable difference between the Pentium and Athlon; go for the cheaper and buy a pen drive with the money saved.

To take advantage of 64bit processing you need 64bit drivers and sottware to which ye shall find very little.
