I was reading yesterday that the motherboard I bought for a core 2 duo is 32 bit but the core 2 duo is 64 bit...I am confused. Sorry, I am new to the computer building world. Will this combo work?

I bought it off of ebay for a cheap build I can practice overclocking on. It's INTEL DG965RY.

It stops at E6xxx because they were 65 nanometre tech,
and the E7XXX series were 40 nm tech. It is risky using the 7500,
two things are likely. The cpu will run but at its lowest power saving multiplier, or it will mess up the bios on the board. Can you find anyone to swap cpu with? Or you could buy a e6600 for about £10.

I do have an old pentium 4 but it also looks like that isn't even supported...ugh. It's the Pentium 4 2.40 ghz/512/533.
