On the surface, that dictates the answer to your question, however, we can't really give you an answer. Only you know what software you need to use...and if it is compatible or not.

The platform doesn't affect the speed and performance. It does affect the amount of memory you can use, and the security you have in place.

Normally, I'd say, unless you have a very specific reason for needing the run Windows 7 x86...then go with Windows 7 x64.
