Retrogaming question over Windows 7 x64

(Moderators/admins, I'm not sure if this is an allowable topic, so you feel like I've contravened any rules with this thread, feel free to delete or lock this.)

This is a simple question really. I'm planning to build a rig with Windows 7 x64. Avid retro gamer that I am, I have a collection of console emulators I use from time to time that I plan to move to the new computer from my present Windows XP x32 rig.

GENS
ZSNES
VirtualBoyAdvance
RockNES
ePSXe
MAME (in the future perhaps)

Will they run without problems on Windows 7 x64? Or should I stick to x32? Thanks in advance.

Most of those emulators should work fine under 7 x64.
Ivy Bridge i5-3570K@4.0Ghz, Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H, 2x4GiB of PC-12800, EVGA 660Ti, Corsair CX-600 and Fractal Refined R4 (W). Kentsfield Q6600@3Ghz, HD 4850 2x2GiB PC2-6400, Gigabyte EP45-DS4P, OCZ Modstream 700W, and PC-7B.

If not, I run DOSbox on x64 just fine to do all my old gaming.

Why are you still using ZSNES? Time to grab SNES9x.
I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do, I do not do. But what I hate, I do.
