GTAV on Steam, 64bit vs 32bit
Please forgive me, I'm really new to having a PC. Actually I've had one for many years until going Mac some 22+ years ago...so my knowledge is very dated...Windows 95 was still new when I stopped using the PC for the mac.
I have GTAV from Steam, its in my 32 bit folder, like a lot of my stuff, and I recently heard someone say that they have a 64 bit version... Am I using the wrong version if I have a newer machine (which I do). How do I get Steam to give me the 64 bit version vs the 32 bit version? I'm assuming I'd notice a huge difference...
Anyway, I don't know and thought I'd ask...
@vendetta1969 What version of Windows have you got and is it 32 or 64 bit?
@vendetta1969 There are two types of Windows OS: 32 bit and 64 bit.
GTA 5 only runs on 64 bit, so if GTA works for you, then its all good and you don't have to do anything.
@vendetta1969 Steam is a 32 bit application, which is why it is located in Program Files (x86) directory. Steam games are installed within the Steam\steamapps\common directory, whether or not they're 64 or 32 bit.
@Jitnaught You know I'd forgotten that Steam is 32bit Must have had my non-geek head on when I wrote my comment!
I'm on Windows 10, its 64 bit version. Okay so Steam is 32bit and my game is 64bit, cool. Kinda weird that Steam still hasn't gone 64bit...
