    there is a free download on Windows Site, i assume it will need key(mybe purched)
    and most importent thing is System requirments, u cant install it on any system(64bit Os supported CPU's).
    i wonder if the Cpu am buying(PIV 3.6) can support it or not.
    also from what i reviewed about it i dont think u can see any improvment unless u add more memory resourses which this new model is capabel of it "now" .

    A free beta version with key can be had directly from Microsoft (enabled to run for 1 year).

    It's stable on my Athlon 64. There are still compatibility issues with running some programs on it.

    No it can't. Like we all said i hardware world drop that piss-poor 32 bit chip for a 64bit future proof AMD chip, cheaper than Intel and when running a 64bit OS you get something like a 22-23% increase over a shyte 32bit chip. Meaning in the future you can expect your 3400 + 22-23%.

    Look what happens when i type Windows 64Bit into google. First link Bawa takes you HERE, then you click the giant image that says test it now

    It took 30 seconds to find that, 1.5 minutes to write this out and 3 and half minutes to decode your post into english (it was rather a good post for you thinking about it) and 60 seconds to steal your car

    It will run on your Athlon 64 and it's already stable.
