Hello.

It's mandatory to run the x64 version of Windows with my AMD Phenom 64 X3 8650 processor?

What version would you recomand me to buy if I have just 2GB of RAM?

Thanks you!

No it is not mandatory and I would recommend any 32bit version with just 2gig RAM

I concur, with 2GB of ram, unless you are planning to upgrade that to 4+ I would stick with 32 bit windows. Any version you like, but here is the comparison list so you can compare features and see which windows you think you need ^_^

Will my processor work better under a x64 version of Windows?

It is advantageous to use an X64 OS when you:
have more working memory (over 3GB)
run many programs simultaneously
have newer hardware.

Your processor will work the same under x86 and x64
