Hello!

I am gettin an AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 6000+ Processor w/ HyperTransport and Dual Core Technology and Genuine Windows Vista™ Home Premium
this week, and I am wondering if this computer will be able to use Rybka 64 bit version.

Do I need a 64 bit version of Windows Vista? Forgive my ignorance.

Thanks

After "Genuine" Windows Vista, I thought you were selling me one. :P I guess you just copy pasted the description. Anyway, it sounds like a  good system for chess (and other things). My last system was with an Athlon XP 2400+ so I can only imagine how fast yours will be. Although, XP Pro 64 bit gives better performance. Also, make sure you especially request the 64-bit version. By default, most retailers sell the 32-bit edition.

Holly crap! I just checked my e-mail and it looks like my system has been shipped with the 32 bit edition of Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium. Will I be able to make an update online to the 64-bit Edition, or I will have to buy it?

I used a slightly different guide specific to Thinkpad laptops - it worked great. In short, you just have to buy the 64-bit Anytime Upgrade disk for $7.
