I need to know if my cpu is 64 or 32 bit
I'm upgrading my motherboard to this - http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/specpage.jsp?MSI-PT890N
I'm also getting 1gb of ram 667 mhz
my processor details are:

INTEL PENTIUM 4
3.00GHZ/1M/800
SL7J6 MALAY
Q428A368

I'm not sure if it means anything but this processor does not have all the pins on the bottom its flat with lots of small gold circles.

Also i want to buy windows vista premium 64 bit if my cpu is compatible

Thanks

Your CPU is 32 bits and it is not 64bit compatible.

You must buy the 32bit version of Windows Vista.

Try getting 2 GB of RAM if you want a good performance in Vista, and it is also very important to have a good graphics card, as onboard ones struggle on Vista.

Thank you dnudelman,

I was looking on forums across google and there was a lot of poor compatibility ratings for the 64bit version.  maybe it was people like myself installing vista on wrong hardware.  I have placed my 32 bit order now, thank you for the feedback and fast response!
