    It means 32bit. x86 is the name of the architecture used in the chip. It dates back to the original PC cpu, the 8086, then came the 286, 386, etc. They are all improvements of the original, so they just started calling them x86 as a whole.
    mlee49 and FooArm say thanks.

    I only have 3gb and when 4gb is cheap and the norm I will use x64 but for now 32 is good enough for me :)

    And sorry I thought you were freaked out at 32bit Vista cause I seem to be one of the few gamers that has it lol
