The DVD won't use anything to do with your installed copy of Windows. 
FreeBSD is a fully capable OS in its own right.

You said you have an i5 processor?  That should certainly be 64-bit 
capable.  Any mainstream processors Intel has produced in the last ten 
years or so will be 64-bit capable.  Given the choice, use a 64bit OS. 
Like I said -- try it.  The worst that will happen is you'll create some 
useless installation media that you can't boot from.

Network and VGA should work, the webcam could well work but the 
fingerprint reader might be tricky.
