Windows 7: Win 7 64 Bit

Win 7 64 Bit

Hi guys,

I am running win 7 rc 32 bit on my dinosaur pc, ( Which is a temporary thing ) and have purchased retail version of Win 7. I want to run the 64 bit version until i get a pc upgrade, and Microsoft's min spec for this is 2 gb of ram. My question is, is anyone running the 64 bit version on 1.5 gb of ram? Or know if this is advisable?

Many thanks.

Windows 7 Pro X64 SP1

I've never run Win7 X64 in 1.5GB of RAM. However, I think it'd run, although you might get more disk swapping than you'd like.

However, the first question is: if your PC is a "dinosaur", does it have a CPU that supports 64 bit instructions?

Later: I neglected to read your system specs. A K8V SE Deluxe is Socket 754. If you have an Athlon CPU, it must be an X64. (I believe that some of the cheaper Sempron CPUs weren't 64 bit, but I think that all Socket 754 Athlons were X64.)

Thanks for the reply bobkn.

I have a 64 bit processor, so thats no prob. Will prob give it a go then, dont think the drive access thing will be too much of a problem.

Thanks again.
