Windows 7: Windws 7 32 bit or 64 bit

Windws 7 32 bit or 64 bit

I have a dell inspiron 1545 dual core 2.1ghz - 4gb ram - intel gma 4500mhd laptop. Should I install windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit considering how powerful it is and which one would perform best?


p.s. I have windows vista and windows 7 32-bit installed on different partitions but since the download deadline is nearing I wanted to try 64-bit before it is too late.. but your opinions are still welcome.

Funny i was asking the exact same question here a couple of days ago. I decided to try the 64bit of windows 7 and so far so good. I even tested a game that didnt run so well on the RC 32bit version of windows 7 and it runs much better. 1 thing tho, and im hoping this is just an isolated issue, is that i noticed my ram hitting 98% (Out of 3gb) - I closed everything and fired up task manager showing all processes, and there was nothing running that amounted to the 2.7gb of memory being used. I rebooted and it seems to be ok now, using just over 800m. Will keep an eye on it.

I checked out your laptop @ Dell. Your system is well-configured for 64-bit. Once you 64, it's 32 no more.

Think PlayStation vs PlayStation 3. Both do the same thing. Which would you rather play?

come on... it's not the same... I really don't think you can compare Windows7 32/64 with Playstation/3...

I know that 64bit can view 4gb+ ram... like me, I have a intel dual core 1.5 with 3Gb ram...

Launch Firefox will not take 0.2 sec to launch with the 64bit Windows 7?!?!?!??!?

Seriously, what is the difference
