The AMD Opteron processor, enabling simultaneous 32- and 64-bit computing, represents the landmark introduction of the AMD64 architecture. The AMD Opteron processor is designed to run existing 32-bit applications with outstanding performance and offers customers a simplified migration path to 64-bit computing.

P.S. I don't have that big of a problem with you using school computers. (Sig)

Opteron's are the server versions of the Athlon 64's, they are socket 954. you can get mobo's with dual socket 954's for the Athlon 64 FX or the opteron and they support dual channel DDRRAM unlike the socket 754 proc's, although the Athlon 64 3400+ performs very well compared to the FX despite not supporting dual channel
