What is the Difference between 32 bit and 64 bit?

The terms 32-bit and 64-bit refer to the way a computer’s processor (also called a CPU), handles information. The 64-bit version of Windows handles large amounts of random access memory (RAM) more effectively than a 32-bit system. To run a 64 bit version of Windows, your computer must have a 64 bit capable processor (CPU).
