Windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit

Hey everyone! Dumb question (sorry, I'm a noob), how can I tell if I am running 32-bit or 64-bit Windows 7? I just bought this computer and I need to update the graphics drivers. Problem is I have to decide to download the 32-bit or 64-bit version. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much!

    Go to the System Properties window in Control Panel (hot key is Windows Key + Pause/Break). The System Type line has your answer.
  2. If it is 32 bit and you have over 2 gigs of ram then I would recommend going to 64 bit for a performance increase
  3. Sounds good. Thanks!

  5. Can also type `system information' in search bar and click on the result. It should show you the build (6.1...), x-86 (32 bit) or x-64 (64 bit), and also other useful details (memory installed, used, available, etc). For the last part itself (memory bit), it is useful to pink `system information' to the start menu.
