You, as well, want the IA32. If you had 64bit you'd more than likely know it. It's the "next generation" cpu's. However, most home-users won't have them, not yet anyway.

Cool

Sure

You can actually read about the 64 bit processors on the manufacturer's respective websites:
www.intel.com (http://www.intel.com/products/browse...nd_processors&)
www.amd.com (http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/...8_8825,00.html)

It's much faster architecture, obviously, but at what cost? A LOT.

Cool
