A procceseor isn't 32/64 bit. Your operating system is. But you need a "powerful" processor to handle 64bit. Bassically any new cpu and most older ones can handle it which one do you have?

Taken from newegg.coms Athlon IIx4 specs:

Brand AMD
Processors Type Desktop
Series Athlon II X4
Model ADX630WFGIBOX
CPU Socket Type
CPU Socket Type Socket AM3
Tech Spec
Core Propus
Multi-Core Quad-Core
Name Athlon II X4 630
Operating Frequency 2.8GHz
Hyper Transports 4000MHz

As you can see it does specify if it supports 64 bit.

If you know what processor it is, you can usually find that information on either AMD or Intel's web site. Look for architectual design specifications.

Go to run and type dxdiag on it.. If its 64bit processor the info will show as ' x-64'.. If nothing shows then its 32bit
