I'm going to be upgrading my PC soon. currently I'm running a Pentium 4, 2.8 GHz 478 with 1 Gig PC 3200 and a Geforce 5700 FX. an alright system, but I want to take advantage of some of the new technologies.

It's kind of stupid for me to upgrade being that I usually only play muds ( http://www.dsl-mud.org shameless plug aura)

But in my Upgrade I plan to upgrade to a 64 bit Intel. probably that sexy 805 which is indeed 64 bit complient.

I guess my question is, is it worth upgrading Windows to Windows Prof 64 as well as my hardware, or is the performance gain negligible. Also, will there be any compatibility issues with games'n'at?
 
You won't notice any difference between 32-bit and 64-bit on Intel. I know there is a marked improvement with AMD on Linux, but I haven't seen any Windows benchmarks to show the difference between the two on either platform.
