Yes, you have to check and make sure your system can support it before going for it.

Its your CPU that determines whether you can do 64bit or not. (Obviously your motherboard has to support your processor too). What processor are you using? Googling it will tell you if it can handle it or not. Does the Upgrade Advisor say anything about it?

32bit OS does use up to 4gb RAM.

Yes, but MS has restricted the addressable amount to less than 4gb...

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.
