I'm gonna get the 32bit cause I don't have enough ram to take advantage of 64bit.

My hardware is optimized for 64bit and I have 4 Gigs of RAM so 64bit all the way, IMO there is no need for 32bit these days, unless your computer doesn't support 64bit.

On my two main comps I'm getting x64 (even though they only have 2 gigs of RAM, I want to try x64), but my junk comp doesn't have a 64-bit CPU so I have to go x86.

I'd reconsider... I've noticed that the 64-bit somehow uses 7% more memory than the 32-bit without any app running. I have 3GB memory atm so it's not that bad, but I don't know what will happen when I run all sorts of 64-bit software.

I didn't know that, thanks for the heads up.

I guess some feedback from other users would be good in this case. I don't want to be responsible for preventing you from downloading a potentially great OS :P

It's just that in my case it used 7% more memory without any apps running. I don't know about others

My Vista (for example) X64 from X32 actually used less memory in my case, and I know that (when I install) Windows 7 X64 it will be a great OS - can't wait!
