I promise you will notice more improvement from using 10K drives for your video than you will from 64 bit Windows. Rendering is better, but preview is the same from my experience.

It is also important that you research the tweaks that improve vista's performance, if you haven't already.

64 bit Vegas is useless if you need plug in support, except for Excalibur, it works with it.

Some people are using Vegas 8.1 and are enjoying it. Enjoy your new machine!

The largest gain IMHO is that EVEY 32 bit app you run can allocate 4gb of real mem.

So having 8gb in the machine you can give vegas/premeiere 4gb, 2gb to photoshop and still have 2gb left for the OS

And memory is CHEAAAP - (at least DDR2 - no gain going DDR3 for rendering) - I bought 8gb 6 months ago, today - the same money would get me 16gb...

Sorry but i think on 32bit systems you can use maximum 4gb total ram(the right is 3,2gb), not 4gb to vega, 2gb to photoshop... On 64bit systems you can do this.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Yes, you can do this. I do it all the time. In fact, you can use 8.1 and 8.0c on the SAME computer. I do this on my laptop. The .AVI file support is pretty weak in 8.1 so I end up working in quicktime formats. Version 8.1 supports nearly all my better codecs that way including the AJA and Blackmagic 10bit ones. Makes going back and forth a breeze. Just remember that just because you use a plug-in in 32 bit, doesn't mean you can save the .veg and move to 64 bit. You've got to render first so that you don't need the plug-in to get he look.
