Does Asus P5VDC-X with BIOS v. 0701 support 64-bit OSes?

Hello everybody!

How to check
if my mobo P5VDC-X (Asus)
socket LGA 775
BIOS v. 0701 (American Megatrends Inc.) 11/08/2009
supports 64-bit OSes?
The question is because I'd like to buy
Intel Pentium Dual Core E5300 2.6 GHz.

Best regards,
Tomasz.

Is it a good way to partition hdd:
1, 2, 3 partition up to the 128GB capacity (and not to across that limit), rest of the hdd - till the end of (--> 160GB)?
Or in general - is one of the partition end must be at 128GB capacity?

I use GRUB to boot any of my OS'es... installed at 1. partition on my existing 80GB hdd; now I'm convinced there will be no problem to boot and use 160GB hdd.
Thanks to All,
Tom.

Denis - thanks for information!
