Sorry - could you move this to the appropriate Software forum? I accidentially put it under Hardware. Thanks! Forum: SQL Server 2005 Performance Tuning for Hardware Posted: Aug 3, 1:39 AM [GMT -8] Post Subject: Is 64 bit reliable? Post author: vich Upgrade time. Considering going 64 bit Windows 2003 + 64 bit SQL Server 2005 (Standard) on a single quad-core IBM box with 8GB RAM. I'm concerned that 64 bit SQL Server is too new to trust. My alternative: Get 32 bit versions that allow AWE Memory on the same box. Suggestions? Advice?
