I belieave you have to get a copy of Win XP Pro 64bit Edition to take advantage of the 64 processor.

No, the athlon 64 has a lot better memory handling and such than the older cpus. Also, you have a 64bit computer that you can upgrade your OS later. I don't believe you waisted money if that is what you are worried about. And doesn't it have better battery life.
