I know this has been brought up several times but, for some reason I couldn't find it when searching...So is the mother board the determining factor or the processor? Neither? I'm a bit confused here. I know my 1.83Ghz CoreDuo is 32bit, if I replaced it with a T7400 2.16 Core2Duo am I now 64bit?

Plan to do an overhaul to it, I've had it almost 2 years and it's cheaper than buying a new machine, unless it's not going to give me the 64bit compatibility then I'll spend the extra cash for a new machine. I know the 64bit deal isn't a big deal, I've been confused by this and am just curious. I am doing the processor upgrade for the increase in speed, not really the 64bit compatibility...

ClunkClunk I apologize in advance for an grammar/spelling/punctuation errors... Embarassed Laughing Embarassed Laughing

If money is not a factor, hmmm...

MacPro
-Two 3.0GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
-16GB (8 x 2GB) RAM
-4 x 750GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s
-NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 512MB, Stereo 3D (2 x dual-link DVI)
-2 x Apple Cinema HD Display (30" flat panel)
-16x SuperDrive
-Both Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and AirPort Extreme

LOL... according to Apple we're up to $15,867.00 already!

-Quad-channel 4Gb Fibre Channel PCI Express card
-Xserve RAID 14x500GB Apple Drive Modules 7TB

Hardware total...$29,265.00

Add in software and accessories and one could buy an '08 Mercedes C300 (preferably in Barlo Red Metallic)!

That was fun! Oh well...back to reality!

I'd say Buy a new 20" 2.4Ghz iMac... Might as well start with a new machine with a fresh warranty.

Yes, your processor is 64bit.

Dude, right now if money wasn't a factor, I would buy the 24" iMac new, with all the specs maxed out. I mean, how awesome would that be?

The Mac Pro has always seemed a bit larger than life to me... I mean 8x3GHz Pr. + 1TB HDD + 16GB RAM + 512MB GFX seems to me like it could take off and hover mystically, surrounded with a godly light whilst a small choir of angles sang in harmony around it.

And how AWESOME would it be if it had the old PowerMacintosh 6200 sturtup chime? Seriousley, it would be a deity in itself. I would dedicate tuesdays to worshipping it, and keep it in a time-space bubble when I'm not using it to keep it perfect Laughing

Until pigs learn to fly, I think I shall return to saving for this MacBook...

very crafty with your words there "Anthro".!! It made for a great read.

Perhaps I should clarify "money not a factor". I listed the possibilities I would consider. Of course I'm not made of money nor do I own a bank. I can't use a monitor bigger than a 20" (my setup won't allow) that's why I listed the options I did.

I meant of the options listed (the prices of each vary a lot) money won't be a factor. I can purchase any of the 3 listed "no problem"...

Maybe that will help..

Yes, your processor is 64bit.


I still haven't gotten a clear answer here...

The processor I know is 64bit. I was under the impression that the Logic Board had something to do with it as well. I understand bits, bytes, gigs, megs, etc. I just can't get my head around this "32bit" / "64bit" thing...

I think I understand the advantage of it...that being that the machine can process information faster ( a lot faster). Is that only relevant to certain circumstances? Would all Apps. run better/faster (I know the App has to be 64bit compliant)

anyone, please help...
