Ok I have changed my vote as the processor which I previously thought was 32-bit, is apparently classed, now, by Windows 10, as 64-bit

A brief look round the web reveals I should indeed be able to install Windows 10 x64..../.
https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-windows_install/can-my-system-support-64-bit-os/35d0684b-cdd6-40a1-b8eb-26386bcfc902

Also that my motherborard supports 64Gb of RAM.

I am sorely tempted to install x64 Windows 10 and increase my RAM from 4 Gb to 8 Gb. Can't see myself ever needing more than 8 Gb.

Any thoughts / advice??

Cheers!

I never use more than half of my 64 gigs of ram, even while doing like 8 things at once.

64 GB seems kinda overkill. Many people are still fine with 8 GB (I have 8 and use like 55%)

Yeah, but gets REALLY nice while doing intensive things.

I just checked, it was actually 32gigs, but that's still overkill.

(So that's why I can only use half of 64 gigs :P)

When I am streaming video, playing 2 video games, programming, posting, ti-connecting, and composing all in one session, RAM is useful.

I tend to just leave things running.

So I'll be in the middle of say, a post, and feel really inspired and go program something, then decide that I want to take a break and play a game, but I'll forget to close the window.
