Hello.

So i was wondering what do you guys think what windows 8 requirements will be.
this has always made me think. I think they would be...

Windows 8 home edition...
2gb ram 32-bit, 4gb ram 64-bit, 8gb ram 128-bit.
HDD: 20gb 32bit, 23gb 64bit, 35gb 128bit.
GPU: 128mb directx11 compatible video card supporting wddm 2.5 32-bit
256mb directx11 compatible video card supporting wddm 2.5 64bit
512mb fully directx11 compatible video card supporting wddm 3.0 128bit
Touch compatible screen Recommended.

What do you guys think?

Iv been hearing news that windows 8, or the next windows will be supporting
128-bit processors. although no news has been released by intel or amd about the 128-bit CPU from what iv heard. but it could be possible considering the way we are headed in the technology world. And most probably if there is a 128-bit os it would be for some big science company or google or something.

You've been hearing wrong. There are no 128-bit processors, none even being designed at present. Not that surprising, as 64-bit processors haven't reached their limits yet - all current ones restrict the address bus to considerably less than 64 bits. Even if a 128-bit processor were being designed now it would be several years before became commercially available, and a few years more until people started writing software for it.

Mind, it is possible that Windows 8 will feature a 128-bit NTFS, which is where the confusion arises. That's totally unconnected with the processor.

Interesting, I was under the same impression as OP but now that you mention it this makes much more sense.
