Beat me to it. Yes the retail comes with both. If you have the OEM, you will need to get your hands on a vista DVD with both, and just use your key.

You will need that DVD somehow, because you can't download or buy just a 64 bit upgrade.... So worst case scenario you'd have to go out and buy a retail version. Else find someone with the retail version and install the 64 bit and your
windows product key should still work.

Nope, didn't buy it at a store. I got it through Cyberpowerpc.com It was actually cheaper to buy from them than off newegg O.o And then I didn't have to go through the hassle of putting it together.

So I figured if it's cheaper and they put it together, why not?

So the only way for me to get 64 is by calling up cyberpower?

Even if I could get a hold of a 64 bit DVD I couldn't use it correct?

no get a hold of a 64-bit dvd just make sure that its either the brand of your PC or generic... (microsoft brand if you will), that will work

Hmm, well I don't know anyone with the 64 bit version, and since Microsoft's website won't send me one, I think I'll have to call cyberpower.

Just phone up MS and get them to send you a 64 bit dvd for $10 plus shipping. just prove that you have 32 bit by showing them the invoice.
