I didn't even think of it when I ordered my new system. I currently have the same copy of windows xp home I've had all along. Do I need to get 64 bit XP professional for my Athlon 64 X2 dual core processor to work? I'd hate to have to have to buy a retail copy.. argh
Thanks

I've had a 64bit processor for about a year and have been running Windows XP (32bit) with no problems what so ever. As far as I know, you can run 32 or 64, you just have the ability to upgrade to 64 when you're ready =D.
