Upgrading to Windows 7 64 -- Driver Questions

The computer has this CPU, which I think will run a 64 bit operating system, but correct me if I am wrong.

http://ark.intel.com/products/29765/Intel-Core2-Quad-Processor-Q6600-%288M-Cache-2_40-GHz-1066-MHz-FSB%29

The problem is that the dell website only has drivers for a 32-bit system-- what should I do?

The drivers that come up on the website are for removable hardware, Serial ATA, and AMD driver for the video card.

Thanks
