I had some problems with my first DL of the 64-bit Windows installer after I upgraded my computer, but the 32-bit version I have had still works pretty well. Is there any good reason to sit through the re-download of the 64-bit DS4?

    The 64bit version will use ALL the memory of your system. The 32bit has limitations as to how much memory it can access.

    You can get more stuff into a scene without it using up all the available memory.

    You can also adjust the cores it used on a 64 bit machine in task manager. So, you can get more power and speed, but still reserve some resources for other tasks (if needed).

    It won't necessarily use ALL, but it will have access to more than 2gb IF NEEDED.
