    VLC makes limited use of the GPU.
    Try to run a 3D engine on 32-bit and do the same on 64-bit, and you will see the difference especially with nVIdia drivers.

      One of these two statements is obviously incorrect.

        From my perspective, a SSD, a nVIDIA graphic card, and a gamming computer are also a mandatory

          Curious how people used GPUs on 32bit OS's in the past. In fact we have quite the number of Win7 devices with GPUs in my office.

            I think the point that Patrice is making is that 32 development has long ago stopped in graphics cards and 64 bit is the norm for new and upcoming stuff. Most GPU code is run from libraries and they are almost exclusively modern 64 bit.

                Hutch is right,

                the nVIDIA latest libraries i am using are only available in 64-bit, and they are written in C++.

                Also a good knowledge of C is a MANDATORY if you want to write GPU shaders.
