    Try them both, then decide. You're going to get about a million reasons to use one over the other.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    So usually 64 bits version are faster than 32 ones
    With proper software in scientific computing application 64 bit OS will outperform 32 bit operating system, but BT5 won't have any advantage beside the password number crunching when done in the software so you will hardly spot any difference.
