I have an iMac that I will be installing Windows 7 on soon. I have the option to choose between the 32-Bit and 64-Bit versions of Windows 7 Professional. I would like to get the 64-Bit version so that Windows can address all 4GB RAM in my iMac and then leave me room to expand if necessary. The problem that I run into is that I have Flight Simulator X: Deluxe Edition as well as FSX: Acceleration. According to Microsoft (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/windows-7/en-us/Search.aspx?l=en-us&type=Software&s=Flight%20Simulator%20X) FSX: Deluxe Edition is not compatible with the 64-Bit version. Would I be able to install Win7 Pro 64-Bit as well as FSX: Deluxe Edition and then immediately install FSX: Acceleration? All of the other games I have are compatible with 64-Bit Windows 7 Pro.

I recommend running 64-Bit Windows. As the iMac is designed to run 64-Bit OSs. I have Flight Simulator X and am installing it on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit computer right now.
EDIT: I have finished the install and was flying around and there were no problems, I have not installed the acceleration yet but I am sure that if the normal one works so will the acceleration.
