What do you think? Primarily gaming rig. Should I go for the 64 bit, even if it will take a bit longer? Is it worth the wait? Does xp really work well in 64 bit? Are there different drivers I will need, and are they hard to find? Will I be loosing that ~500mb if I go 32bit (3.5gigs showing), and will that make a HUGE difference?

Looking for future-proof-ish ideas.

Thanks guys :)
Either go with XP-32 or Vista-64. Although i don't have XP-64, i've read nothing but bad reviews/problems with it...especially compared to Vista-64. The ~500MB lost to a 32bit OS won't have much negative affect. If you're going for future-proof, you might as well go Vista Home Premium. GL
