The Q6600 is a 64-bit processor, so 64-bit Windows 7 will be fine on it.

You'll be able to run a 64bit operating system just fine. Can I ask why you would want a 64bit operation system? Just have a normal 32bit Windows 7 since you've only got 3GB of RAM.

exactly
you won't be needing a 64-bit OS unless u have more than 4gb of ram and u want to take advantage of 'em all
