Yes, especially if it ran Vista already. Windows 7 x86 would run well, probably better than Vista did.

You won't see any benefit from running an x64 OS with only 2 GB of memory, so there's no harm in staying with Windows 7 x86 (32 bit). Your license key will work with either platform.

Have him run this Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor
when you say a came with an extra copy of Windows 7 does it have its own key different than your new computer?
If not it is not an extra copy.

It sounds to me that the Poster bought Win 7 and received the 32 and 64 bit in one package. If this is the case, you can only use one of them at a time. They only have one Key. You would not be able to give one away.
