Hi,

The subject says it all! I'm after a cheapo PC to test some software
under a 64 bit Windows OS. Will an Intel Dual Core E5300 run it?

Thanks!

Pete

Yep. See "intel 64" tick at http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=35300

And it's only an efficiency gain, isn't it? Certainly VMware/Virtual
Box/Parallels don't need Vt support.

What about Windows7's "virtual XP" thing, does that need Vt?

I'm sure it used to be the case that one or other of these things
recommended not turning it on (because they were actually slower with
it turned on). However, for VirtualBox it appears it *is* a
performance gain. Also required for some things:
<http://www.virtualbox.org/manual/UserManual.html#hwvirt>. Presumably
VMware has similar advice.

There are plenty of people on the beta groups with fairly new PCs who
can't run VirtualXP so I think the chips do need Vt

It runs fine on my laptop with an AMD QL-60
