Only the CPU, because the motherboard has to support the CPU. So, if the CPU will work on the motherboard, then the motherboard will support the x64 OS. The only issue is if the board supports 4 GB of emory, and it would be hard to find a recent board that does not.

It will tell you that you have 4 GB of memory installed....but it can't use or address all of it.
