64 or 32 bit????? I don't have either in 32bit but am downloading Win7 RC in 32bit currently but it will be a day or so with my internet connection speed and I was wondering about drawbacks using a 6GB kit in a 32 bit OS???

32 bit will just show 3.5Gb of ram in windows.

But as soon as my 2 Gtx 295 waterblocks get here, I will play around again with quad SLI

I understand that, but will using a 6GB kit be detrimental as opposed to a 2GB or 3GB kit in a 32 bit operating system? If so should I only use one 2GB or two 2GB sticks as opposed to all three?

you will not take a hit running 6gb on 32 bit system. windows just will not allocate the memory over 3.5gb to programs. running dual or single channel though will give a performance hit on an i7.

and yes, they should be here this week

Well I installed Win7 32 bit and switched to the 185.20 drivers and my score still seems low for 2X 9800GX2. Only getting about 230,000, there has to be some tweak I am unaware of.
