Default Vista x64 MCE?

Does Media Center also come with the x64 version of Vista?

Also, would it be alright to get an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800+ for the HTPC i'll be building for my parents? It will have 4GB of RAM, so a 4800+ should be fine, correct? (rather than a 5000+ or higher)

Also, the motherboard i chose has integrated ATI HD3200 graphics. Is that enough to accelerate Aero and Media Center? And if I choose an actual card (say, an 8400GS or 8600GT) will it run faster or smoother at all? (i dont think so, but i could very well be wrong)

remember, NO GAMING at all, i'm only talking about media center and aero

Yes it does, i doubt you will need an additional video card just to run vista

As long as it's the Home Premium or Ultimate versions, it's in 32 and 64 bit.
