Can you run a 64 bit operating system (W7) on an i7 920 cpu equipped computer? Cofused as to whether an X86 cpu is 32 bit, and if this makes any difference. Thanks!

yes and yes there is a difference.

i7 920 uses triple channel memory. I doubt anyone would still use 1gb these days so I’ll assume you have at least 2gb sticks. Which means 3x 2gb sticks to make it triple channel = 6gb total. 32bit operating system is limited to around 3.5gb and will not utilise it all efficiently, but it'll run though.
