Hi all: I am thinking of converting my q6600 to a 64bit version of windows and wonder if it pays to do so. Any comments for or against will be appreciated!

I run ABC on Win7 64bit, looks stable (and ist faster than on 32bit)

But which Project make the most Credit/Hour on 64bit would be nice to know!
Have a N.I.C.E. day!

ABC is paying quite good IMHO.
You can also try yoyo's subproject ecm (warning: sometimes high RAM usage!) or PrimeGrid's Sieve subprojects.
Milkyway is also good but you need an optimized app to get the full speed (look in their forum here) and it's kind of hard to get enough WUs there. *grin*

If you notice the legend at http://boincstats.com/forum/forum_thread.php?id=1774&sort=5, those projects which are underlined have a faster 64-bit application than the 32-bit one.
