    Hey, I have an iMac that I received in july, it's an i7 with mac OS X 10.6.4

    would it be a 32 bit or a 64 bit? I'm ordering Windows 7, but I have no idea which one I'm supposed to get...

    Get the 64-bit as it can take advantage of +3GB of RAM and is better anyway

    okay, so that means my iMac has a 64 bit processor, right ?
