    you surely can:) All core2duo's have FULL support for 64 bit operating systems:)

    btw, i suggest u add another 2GB's first and check....should give a significant boost.

    The problem with your current 32bit OS is that it will only support ~3.5 GB of ram, even though you have 4gb or more physically installed. To make use of more than 4GB ram, you need a 64bit OS. However, for this you will have to reinstall your windows, with the 64 bit edition version.
