Do I have a 32 bit or 64 bit processor

  1. Same as title and my processor is an amd athlon 64 x2 dual core processor 6000+

    I know there is a 64 in the name but i dont know if that is how many bits it runs on because i tried installing my friends windows vista on my computer but it would never work. This could have been due to my processor or his windows vista and i want to know so i will know if i can get windows 7 or not.

    Yes, that is a 64 bit CPU. Even if it was not, you could always get the 32 bit version of windows 7.
