Default 64Bit Vista question

I've heard about all the various editions, but I'm still confused as to which one will sport 64Bit support. What's the word from the manufacturers? Are they going to have 64Bit Vista drivers ready to go when it's released?

I have this fancy Athlon64 and I want to get the 64Bit Vista running on it, but I can't locate the information or I am looking in all the wrong places. Anyone know?

.... Well Vista has already been released.... Most of the editions are 64 bit compatible... If it doesn't say 32bit then most likely it is for 64bit...

What exactly do you want to know?

Your processor is x64 capable and Windows Vista Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate come in x64

AMD Athlon64

Microsoft on Vista x64

The package will say 64 bit. I bought mine in July of 2007. (Home Premium) It has a boatload of updates but it works great with the AMD Athlon x64 5000+.
