    It will have sse3, all prescotts do.
    Dual core is completely unrelated to 64bit, however i'm pretty sure all dual core cpu's except core duo have 64bit extensions.

    Good board?
    For a good all-rounder, Asus, Msi
    Best for value, Asrock
    Best for overclocking, Abit, Dfi

    Why have you chosen that chip?
    If you could stretch to the X2 3800+ you would see significant performance improvements.
