Default Re: 32 bit or 64 bit OS?

The processor has to support 64 bit correct?

But yes, you can put 32 bit onto a 64 bit processor.

Ram is just where programs can store short-term memory and the programs can "call" the data from the ram instead of the hard drive or ssd...so the more ram u have the more data the program can store..making it faster.

Your system will run fine with 32bit but do remember you will only be able to use around 3.5GB RAM.

Yes. Umm what do u mean by clean install? Like from a completely new system with an OS or just a clean install where it wipes ur programs and files?

To fully format the HDD before installing the OS, one option is to use DBAN (Darik's Boot And Nuke) - Freeware.

I think Killdisk is better. It low level formats the disk where no data is recoverable.

You probably won't need that though it's good for recycling drives or sale.
