Tags: New Build Systems Product Last response: February 28, 2010 5:14 PM in Systems Share discboy321 February 28, 2010 4:19:54 PM General question from a noob builder.Does a mobo dictate whether its a 32 or 64 bit system ? I am doing a new build for one of my step children and was wondering what the difference was and which one to install. Any help will be great. Thank you.

More about : win 32bit Ijack February 28, 2010 4:44:15 PM The processor dictates whether it's 32- or 64-bit. You'll be hard-pressed to find a 32-bit processor nowadays apart from some very low-level ones (like the basic Atoms). m 0 l discboy321 February 28, 2010 4:57:52 PM Thanks.
