I am a bit confused over the 32 vs 64 bit versions of the new windows 7 OS.
I would like to utilise the 64 bit version when it's released on the 22nd, but am unsure whether my system can do it.
I have a Athlon 64 processor 3500+ and 3gb ram, does this mean I can use the 64 bit version when I install or will windows 7 automatically detect what version I need?

Yes you can run 64 bit with that set up.
