Difference between 64bit and 32bit

Just also keep in mind that not all 32bit apps play nice on 64bit OS.
It's not usually a big problem,, but it does happen, and should be a slight concern.

However,, 32bit OS's are (hopefully) on their way out and 64bit will rule for a while.

Go for 64bit if you have 4 gigs of ram.
