Do I need Windows Pro x64 with processor Intel 650 3.4Ghz

By dbonstow ·
A bit confused - as the Intel 650 reports being a 64bit do I need Windows Pro 64 rather than the regualar programme, or does it not matter?
Thanks in Advance - first PC build at home.

No you don't as that CPU will support either 32 or 64 Bit operation

Actually you will be better off with the 32 Bit Version of this OS as it has more drivers that are supported which isn't the same when it comes to the 64 Bit OS as they are very few Drivers available compared to the number of available 32 Bit Drivers.
