Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 32 BIT
windows 7 ultimate 64-bit in which computer should I install?

My current computer is too slow for me and I want to upgrade it.
My current computer specs.

Motherboard: ASRock P4i65G
Memory: 2GB DDR 400Mhz

My cousin brought me two HP computers And I want to install windows 7 64-bit in one of them,
the first computer is HP DX2000, spec.

Socket: 478
CPU: Intel Pentium 4 (SL7PM), 3.00Ghz, Bus speed 800Mhz, L2 Cache 1024 KBytes
Motherboard: OEM (NR146)
Memory: 4GB DDR 400Mhz
Chipset: 865G
Graphic: Intel 865G/GV Graphics
Audio: ADI888 AC97 Audio
LAN: Intel Gigabit Network Connection

The second computer is HP DX5150 and his spec.

Socket: 939
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3500+, 2.2Ghz, Bus Speed 1600, L2 Cache 512 KB
Motherboard: OEM (MS-7050 ver2.0)
Memory: 4GB DDR 400Mhz
Chipset: ATI IPX 400 (sb 400)
Audio: Realtek ALC6555 AC'97 Audio
LAN: Broadcom BCM5751 NetXtreme Gigabit

I'm considering to install windows 7 64-bit, because of memory size, I know 32-bit version can not work with this memory size,
Therefore I want to know what your recommendation on this subject, in which PC I can install the windows 7 64-bit that will work smoothly with no problems?

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1, 64-bit

You should run this application on both PCs:

Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor - Download - Microsoft Windows

You appear to be misinformed. Windows 32-bit will work fine with 4 GB of memory. It just won't be able to use all of that 4 GB--only about 3.3 GB.

I think those 2 CPUs are quite close to each other in an overall benchmark.

Windows 7 Home Premium x64 SP1

On glance i would chose the second one however stick with ignatzatsonic advice and use the upgrade adviser.

Linux (Mint is primary) / XP, Win7 Home / Win7 Pro, Ultimate / Win8.1 / Win10 archived VM

I would go with the Athlon 64 3500+ and do a "safe" overclock - should do around 2.6GHz with a Manchester core and if the mobo allows it. The 4GB of RAM will be just fine. The XPRESS X200 is about the same as the NVidia FX5200 so no benefit swapping it out.

My "old games" box / Linux test box has a 3500+ on a Gigabyte board running at 2.66GHz, rock stable.
