Hi, your CPU can certainly support 64bit and you will able to install Windows that is 64bit without issue.

This suggests that you are not sure if you have 32 or 64 bit Windows at the moment. To find out for certain, click 'Start' then RIGHT click on 'Computer', then click on 'Properties' and in the middle of the screen that appears you will see a line 'System Type'. This line will tell you if you have a 32 or 64 bit system at the moment.

 

The only real advantage that a 64 bit system brings is that you will be able to use all of your existing 4Gb of RAM instead of about 3.4Gb at present. Of course, if you intend upgrading your RAM to more than 4Gb then a 64 bit system is essential.
