The answer is not as simple as it may seem. Your system DOES support the Windows 7 64bit version. However, because you are currently on a 32 bit system, Microsoft states that you will have to do a "Custom Install". Basically that translates to having to install a clean version of Windows 7. You will not have the option of upgrading your current system and keeping all the apps in place. All your apps would have to be reinstalled.
Here's a snapshot of the clearest upgrade chart that I could find: http://mossblog.allthingsd.com/files/2009/08/windows-upgrade-chart.png
oh, that's cool. I even want to have a fresh install on it. It has two HDDs so i guess i can copy all the files i need to the second drive and just erease and perform a clean install on the main hdd...I was just curious if my whole system supports 64 bit (i know that the processor does)
i can't take vista anymore...and $25 seems to be a good price for 64 bit Win 7...if it's really better than vista
