PC was purcahsed in 2006 (about January so could even be a late 2005 model)

Its a Intel Pentium D 2.8Ghz
4GB Ram (showing 3.2GB on Windows XP 32-bit OS)
512MB ATi Radio 2600 Pro Graphics

How do I know if the PC will run 64-Bit or even if it handles 64-bit, I've been in everywhere I can't find anywhere to tell me this. Suggestions?

Thanks.

That's not what I want to know, I already know that, I want to know if my PC is caple of running 64-bit OS but I've googled and followed instructions and can't find anything to say if its 32-Bit and 64-Bit or just 32-Bit only.
