Windows XP32 or XP64

No XP64 wont increase game performance.

If you have it already, its handy if you want native support for over 3gb of ram though.

Some claim it would actualy be slower since the game is 32bit, though i havent personaly noted it going any slower.

Keep XP 32-bit horny. You won't see any increase in performance with X64. You're more likely to end up with driver problems, the hardware manufacturers aren't developing the X64 drivers anymore, at least not some of them.

Most games and software for the end-user market are still 32 bit anyway, the software made for XP 64-bit are generally heavy professional apps like CAD and such.

i run vista64 bit, for no particular reason either i just decided to.

however, i extensively researched my peripherals prior to making the jump. if you don't do this you may end up with devices that have no drivers.

btw, game runs fine in 64bit. i still may go back to 32bit one thing i forgot to research is overclocking. 64bit tools for some reason are bugged and do not allow overclocking of nvidia graphics cards. makes me a sad panda.
