Download and run the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. It will tell you if your system can run the 64 bit version.

I have a similar system and would personally go with the x64 version, but as said above the upgrade advisor could be a good option

Your PC may or may not be able to support 64-bit Windows, but in day to day operation, it's unlikely you would notice the difference between 32-bit and 64-bit.

If your PC is acting poorly, it's most likely for some other reason.

Your CPU supports 64 bit instructions, so it could run Windows 7 X64.

Intel® Celeron® Processor E3400 (1M Cache, 2.60 GHz, 800 MHz FSB))

There may be little point for you to install X64, though. The main reasons for doing that is to support more than 4GB of RAM, and to run 64 bit software. If your system wasn't running OK under Win 7 X86, there was probably some sort of problem that's not intrinsic to Windows 7.

Agreed. Upgrading to 64-bit may fix things, but primarily because you're doing a clean install.

ijmazz,

Help us to help you.

Code:
Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec (left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

ADD the word laptop or desktop or netbook to the
“system manufacturer” block, for example,
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.
