    Default 32 bit 64 bit

    I finally have a 64 bit computer but when I try to set the resolution on rFactor the best it shows available is 1366 X 768. How come I can't have a 64 bit choice ?

    Hey Bob, the resolution is for your screen/monitor and has nothing to do with 64 or 32 bit. Pretty sure but maybe some better PC guru can confirm

    If you're talking about the color bit that's listed beside the resolution (i.e. 1366x768x32), your only choices are 16-bit and 32-bit color, with 32 being the better choice.

    Basically, it's the number of colors available (16-bit = 65,536 colors, 32-bit = 16.7 million colors) and is more dependent upon your video card's capabilities than your computer and OS.
