hi i was recently given a old 04' Dimension 8300 from my friend and i was gonna set it up so my little brother can play his age of empires on it and stop using mine

i ordered a new hard drive (200 GB) and i want to know if it was 64 bit compatible so if i can put windows 7 on it if not ill just put windows MCE on it

it has the stock CPU (Pentium 4 socket 478 (NORTHWOOD) 3.0 GHz level 2 cache: 512 KB integrated with hyper threading)

the bios wasnt much help since it was the old A07 and gave my like 4 things about the CPU that are on the front screen anyway :p 

it has 2 gigs of ram and a 7600 GT, the old hard drive had a virus on it and it was my friends dads computer with photos on it and stuff so i bought the new HDD so he will keep the old one

NEED RESPONSES ASAP BECAUSE BIRTHDAY IS THIS SATURDAY

thanks :D  :D  :D 

Best solution

With only 2 gigs of ram I'd advise you to stick with 32 bit windows. If you want to upgrade the ram to 4 gb, then 64 bit windows might be an option.
