32 bit or 64 bit


New member
Hi 3D people,
I am purcashing a new computer to use with Solidworks 2009 student edition. I plan to update to the profissional addition in one to two years.

Should I consider purchasing a 64 bit computer now? The student addition is not supported on this frame and I don't know if that means it will not run on a 64 bit machine.

Any advise would be great thanks.
