After a quick google search it seems that you should be able to run 64bit Windows 7 as long as you have updated to the latest Bios and latest edition of the chip set drivers.

My second question is : Should I get Win-XP Pro 64 Bit, or Win-7 Pro 64Bit
and where can I order the OEM. OS. CD. cheapest ? Thanks..

You should be able to check what the current set of drivers are on the respective websites.

Providing that the article on Microsoft Answers is correct, i see no reason not to get Windows 7.

With regards to where to purchase it from that would depend on where you live.
