Hi,

 

One way if you are running Windows, Run msinfo32 command and check the value for System type. This will tell you if your computer is of 32-bit or of 64-bit.

 

The following Microsoft article includes another method to check and other useful information...

Itanium processors are more used in servers and yes you should install a 64 bits os. There may be some limitations on running some software on a processor like that, I know that Microsoft releases Windows updates especially for the Itanium platform.
