HP COMPAQ dc5800: 32 or 64 bit???

I own a dc5800 Small Form Factor PC. I updated his RAM memory and now it has 6GB.

The problem is that HP support told me that for more than 4GB of RAM memory I needed a 64 bit Operative system...

I'm running Windows Vista Business 32 bit.

Does my computer support a 64 bit operative system??


All the hardware is from factory, only the RAM memories are new...


Help, Please

Yes, your PC will support and run a 64-bit version of Windows Vista.
