I’m upgrading my pc from Win XP to Win 7 OS and need to get a new graphics card that has/supports DirectX 11. A Tom’s Hardware user recommended AMD Radeon HD 7750, but I forgot that my pc is 32-bit. So I’m trying to figure out whether my CPU is 32-bit or 64-bit and if my motherboard is 64-bit compatible or if I’d have to replace either or both. Does anyone know how I can find out? I had zero luck with MSI and AMD websites. This is what I have:
1.AMD Athlon64 4200 Dual Core (2.2GHz), 3.25 GB of RAM
2. MSI K9N4 Ultra F motherboard , NVIDIA nForce 500 Chipset based with PCIe x 16 slot
3. Acer model P205H LCD monitor with 1600 x 900 resolution
I recently added more RAM to accommodate Windows 7, but now need to upgrade the graphics and I’m not sure what else. I have both the 32-bit and 64-bit installation disks for Win 7 (with a single license), so I’m able to install either version. Also, the pc has 2 hard drives, 320 GB each. Thanks in advance for any and all help.
