My download is still on-going. Currently at 71% :/
My internet connection is quite bad, my maximum download speed is something like 450 KBytes / sec.
Concerning the system requirements, I don't think anybody in the sim world is still using 32bits operating systems. These are dinosaurs really. Even back in the Win7 days, I think the vast majority of the users went for the 64bits version anyways. So I don't see the 64 bits requirement as a "OUCH", but more like a "OH YEAH FINALLY!!!"
Appart from this, FSW just needs a bit more graphic card power than FSX really. Anybody with a recent enough video card should be ok. I'm pretty sure your 960 should be fine, as long as you don't install too many HD textures
And the computer RAM can now be fully used. No more OOMs because you looked at that nice detailled scenery at the wrong time
I'll try to write some feedback when I am finally able to launch the sim, but that will probably happen tomorrow only...

The question is in VC. After having made several portovers, IMO the conversion of FSX-P3D planes to FSW should not be a major problem for developers.

If both hard drives are NTFS then Win 7 32 or 64 bit makes no difference. I have hard drives I used with Win XP 32 bit and they work on Win 7 64 bit. Of course there are IDE and SATA hard drives and that has to do with motherboard drivers and not Windows 32 or 64 bit OS. Live and learn.
