Visit this page to learn more about the differences between i386 and amd64 or x86_64 intel cpu architecture. it is sort of funny answer too because the guy asking the question wanted to know if he can install amd64 image on his amd computer – Taz D. Apr 21 '14 at 13:27

Yes, that's fine. All new Intel and AMD processors suppot the AMD64 instruction set. Generally AMD64 just means 64 bit and will work on any modern processor.
