Could you check my PC specifications to install Win 8 - 64 bits ?

Hi Experts!

Could you check my PC configurations are OK  to install Win 8 - 64 bits?

(Actually it has Win 7 - 32 bits installed)

Thanks in advance!

Microsoft built a tool called the Upgrade Assistant for this very purpose — to check if your PC is capable of running W8. Here's an article that explains it (specifically, for W7 to W8), along with a link to download the utility:

For sure you can install Windows 7 64-bit according to your motherboard:
It does not show drivers for windows 8, so I would be hesitant.
For a test you could install Virtual box and join the Windows 10 preview.  Install windows 10 Professional 64-bit in the Virtual box, if that installs then I would wait for that.  Much better than 8 is in MHO
That is no problem with that CPU and hardware.

The better version of windows 8 is 8.1 and you're going to want to increase your memory to 4gigs, but that platform will work without an itch

Suppose I should have mentioned that the MS article I posted is for upgrading to 8.1, not 8. Regards, Joe
