Hey

I used to run Windows 7 32bit, but then decided since im upgrading and will have more then 4gigs of RAM to wipe C drive and install 64bit.

All my games are on a sepearte partition, so they werent touched.

Some games i hear like Just Cause 2 are 64bit, and people say the games in Valve's Orange Box are 64bit. So do i have to reinstall these games completely to make them 64bit (aware?)

Yeah so far they work fine, it's just like just Cause 2 was said to be 64bit but in the process manager it has the *32 next to it
