Windows 7: CPU for 64 bit

CPU for 64 bit

Is a 64 bit CPU needed to get best results from Windows 7 64bit? I have a 64bit ready motherboard and 4gb RAM but I don't really notice much improvement over the 32 bit Windows 7. My CPU is an Intel Core2Duo 2.80ghz.

64bit windows can't be installed without 64bit processor.
Your processor is 64bit processor.

The difference between 32-bit and 64-bit Windows is subtle to the eye - if discernable at all. It has more to with the capability of a system.

Kind of like USB1 and USB2, or Pentium3 and Core2Duo, or IDE and SATA. Each pair does the same thing. One is capable of doing it faster.

It is safe to assume all Core 2 (and above) line of processors are 64bit capable. And pretty much all AMD Processors are 64bit as well.
