Sorry, no 64 bit editions here. I got Pro and Media edition.

Actually, I need to double check on that one. I just got a really cool, holographic CD with a new server we got in. But, it'* at home. 99.9% sure it'* just Pro, tho.

The sound and graphics are just real choppy sometimes. It was my best guess. Could a bad PSU be the culprit???

A bad Power supply can definitely cause issues. Especially if you've added a lot of high-end (read "high power consumption") devices to your computer. Before trying a new OS, get yer lazy butt down to CompUSA and get a cheap 500W power supply. I bought basically the cheapest one they had three years ago, modded my stupid Dell case so it would fit, and have had absolutely no issues (that I didn't cause) since.

I have been using XP64 for quite a while and have not had any problems with drivers not working. Trying to find drivers that support 64 is another thing though.

Buying cheap aint a good idea. You get what you pay for. Instead you shop by weight. The heavier it is, the higher the quality it is.

Dont ever skimp on the power supply, it is a very important component but many people overlook it when they have unexplainable problems.
