There is a 64 bit XP pro version, there is vista 32 bit and 64 bit, windows 7 32bit and 64 bit.
Keep in mind 32 bit operating systems have a 4gig max for ram including the video card. With a 64 bit system ram is virtually unlimited. 32 bit applications will still run on 64 bit platforms.

You can't change an operating system. You have to install it. Check to see if your machine will handle it here

There is no 84 bit. It's 32 or 64.

What do you mean "4gig max for ram including the video card". If a stand alone video card is installed there is no relationship. If the grapics are integrated then they will use part of the 4GB max. RAM.

Is that what you meant?

You need to first do a windows 7 compatibility check on their website. Then you need to PURCHASE a Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit Install DVD with installation key in any electronic store or reputable online store. Then you need to back up all of your files to a separate drive and do a clean in stall (wiping the drive during the install).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
