I believe all Conroe instruction sets are 64-bit, if that is indeed what you are saying. you could be a bit clearer.

You'll need a 64bit os as well. What CPU and OS are you running?

Unless your hardware is more than about 8 years old, I am pretty sure you are 64 bit capable, you likely just to install a 64bit OS.

Choosing 64bit as a Windows OS is one thing but as a Server demands lots of things. Me I usually research software's running on my old server before choosing to migrate. If an upgrade is available well I need the approval to buy. Decision is quite different if the server is plug to a proprietary devices. Care to research first.
