Which version for my processor? Tags: Phenom AMD Processors Windows 7 Product Last response: June 3, 2011 7:06 PM in Windows 7 Share porkeatingcrusader June 3, 2011 6:16:49 PM I am building a PC featuring the AMD Phenom II X4 925 (see below for link) and was wondering exactly what version of windows I need. I am assuming a 64-bit version but not much more than that. If anyone could provide a link to avoid confusion, I would appreciate it.

The best choices would be Home Premium or Professional unless you need Bit Locker or Multi-Language support available in the Ultimate version.

You will need the 64 bit because you will want to use more than 4 gigs of ram !
