Codeweavers maintain a compatibility list on their website http://www.codeweavers.com/compatibility/
Basically it depends what apps/games you wnat to use. Some work quite good with Crossover and some simply don't run at all.
Windows XP 64-bit never was and most likely never will be supported by Apple BootCamp.
Nonetheless Vista 64-bit is supported on your Mac and hopefully sometime in the future Windows 7 64-bit will be too.

I have used Windows XP 64-bit without issue on my MacBook in Boot Camp.
CrossOver is a hit and miss. Some games work great with it (such as Source-based games like Counter-Strike, Half-Life 2, etc.), but for many others its a hit and miss.MacBook 5,2, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
CrossOver for Games is a workable solution for some games just as CrossOver is a workable solution for some programs. Check their web site and you can find the games that are certified to work.20 + 24 iMac • 13" + 15" MBP, Mac OS X (10.6.2), WinXP • Linux • iPhone 3GS • Touch
I checked the compatibility website and found most of the games i wanted to play listed there, so that should not be a problem then.
I had a feeling Apple did not release the drivers for XP 64 as i could not find any documentation for the same. I do not want to install Vista since not a big fan of it and as far as 7 have only the RC. so i guess my next best shot is CrossOver for Mac.
i Just wanted some advice from a CrossOver user on if its really worth working with.!iMac 27" (Late 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.2), 27" iMac 3.06 GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB, 1TB HD.
since u are using 64 XP did u download any special drivers for it or used the ones that came on the install disc.? is it the normal boot camp installation or do u have to do something different.?iMac 27" (Late 2009), Mac OS X (10.6.2), 27" iMac 3.06 GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB, 1TB HD.
I once tried a XP64 installation on my Mac Pro and had to find and download all the essential drivers myself.
Apple never has put any drivers for XP64 on their install discs.
So you will not find any drivers at all for any Apple specific hardware that is in your Mac.
Personally I deleted the XP64 installation and put the XP64 install disc in my drawer...
