Ibuypower marketing 64bit processors?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This is a direct link from newegg and one of the ibuypower rigs they have for sale, I am sure people that remember that walmart was going to start selling them. Now newegg seems to do that now, but they are trying to market their rigs as have "Processor Main Features: 64 bit Six-Core Processor". This is got to be a joke, any processor can run 64 systems, they are just trying to look better in their marketing.

iBuyPower sucks imo.

I think they are pushing the 6 core part more than 64 bit. I mean honestly unless you're rocking XP on a P4 theres NO reason to run 32bit.

Perhaps you typed this wrong, but there are a TON of processors (old) that can't even install a 64-bit OS.

If you want a complete system, please PM me I can build you something MUCH better than the crap they are pushing.

I have a cpu that can't run a 64-bit os. It's a AMD Athlon XP 3200+ with FSB of 400.
EDIT
And the system is still up and running.

lots of 32bit cpu's are still around, but any cpu mande within the last 5 years is a 64bit

I think there are many people who do not realize that almost every new processor can run 64 bit so it makes sense to put that in the ad.
