64 Bit CPU

But if you are building a modern computer this is not even a real question, because they don't even make desktop processors without 64-bit support anymore.
As far as driver support/etc, there are still a few issues that are few and far between. Overall the support is absolutely there and almost everything you try on a 64-bit OS will work fine. I highly recommend a 64-bit operating system because as time goes on, less than 4 GB of memory just is not enough.

every modern processor is 64-bit compatible, and you'll only need 64-bit if you plan on using more then 4gb or ram
I meant I run the 64-bit version of Windows. I have had a few problems with QuickBooks but other than that no other problems.

This is a common misconception about 64bit processors. Memory-mapped files are starting to become a problem in old 32-bit architectures as files of over 4 GB file become more common, mainly due to large HD video files. You will notice an increase in performance with software like encoders, decoders (VLC, FFMPeg, etc) and encryption software.
