    I bought this Processor awhile ago and i believe that it would be 64bit but i may be wrong. Also i bought a copy of Vista to mess around with and i was wondering if i should install the 32bit or 64bit copy with this processor? Please tell me what you think. Thanks!



    Here is a link to the Pro.

    Both can run either 32-bit or 64-bit. the 64 thing doesn't its a 64-bit processor, but it can handle 64 bit os. Correct me if I'm wrong here.

    As far as I know, all new cpus are 64 bit. They can all support either a 32 or 64 bit OS.
    If you have the 64 bit version and lots of ram I'd go with it rather than the 32 bit.
