    Dear all,

    Thanks all for your comment, as 64 bits has I64 and X64, the I64 hardware is just a bit expensive than x64 and I am thinking about this.

    I am also thinking about what kind of software can't runs on I64 of Windows 2003 enterprise edition, AV tools is one of the conern, Zip tools is one of the concern.

    Any more idea can be share, I will go ahead for the I64 version if nobody can rise up more idea.
