My VAR has provided a spec for a 64bit machine as we're having performance issues running COSMOS on large assemblies with our 32bit Vista Business machine. They recommended XP 64 over Vista stating that XP is much more stable.

We're running SW2008 and having read around the subject on these forums, people seem to be having an easier time with Vista 64 than XP.

Who do I listen to when deciding what is the best choice for us? The VAR who should know the software inside out? Or the users who actually have the experience of A vs. B...?

Very confused now.
