X64 and X86 aren't two distinctive terms. X86 means compliance with 32-bit architecture of the 80386 cpu and up. X64 means the cpu has 64-bit capabilities. A cpu can be both x64 and x86. Here's some additional info:


What you probably want to know is if your cpu is 64 bit. Likely there'll be diagnostic software that could tell you. In general I think Intel's core 2 duo cpus and AMD's K8 line are all x64. But you should be able to just google your cpu number and find out that way.

Right click on the My Computer icon and select properties. In the General tab it will show you what you have. If the WinXP information doesn't include 64 at the end then you are running WinXP 32 bit.
