Hi,

I've been trying to find out whether or not to buy Windows 7 32 or 64 bit version. I dont know that much about computers, but I have tried finding information about this. But it has been abit hard. Most "tests" I've used looks at what OS currently is running as. But I want to know if my hardware can support 64 bit as it would allow me to put more ram in the computer and get a better experience.

My processor is called:
Intel® Core™2 Duo CPU E6750 2.66 GHz.

I dont know if you need more info than that. Just ask!

Well if it is, thats just awesome.

But when I open device manager and look at details for the "two" processors they both say x86 family and something else. And I got the impression after going through all those pages on the web that that was 32bit only. But again, Im far from computer xpert as you well may notice. I just want to buy the correct windows :)
 


+1, it's only common sense. The Atom is for basic rigs (like the neo from AMD), and the semprons are the celeron of AMD used for basic laptops and desktops.
