What is the real answer? I have a Q9300 Core 2 Quad @ 2.5 ghz and a 32 bit OS. I was told that if I went into my computer/properties/advanced/environment variables I would be avle to tell if my processor would be able to handle a 64 bit OS by if the processor was identified as x86 or x64. I see x86 but Intel lists this processor as being 64 bit ready. What is the real deal befor I spend money to upgrade to the 64 OS.

Your processor is the real deal, it supports 64 bit instruction. All modern mainstream processors support 64 bit. List your entire system specs. if you want help.

Thanks Badge Thats all I needed to know. I knew it would but got side tracked by some misinformation that lead to a google search with no real answers until you stepped up.
