Home Premium would be fine. But if you need some functions of the higher distros, you can run those too - matter of price. With 3GB of RAM, I would opt for 32bit.

Windows 8.1 Pro RTM x64

Hi xzs and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

The retail versions of Windows 7 come with both 32-bit and 64-bit media, so you can install either. The 64-bit version will run perfectly well on 3GB and, if you upgrade/increase your memory it will run even better.

Windows 10 Pro. EFI boot partition, full EFI boot


Unless you have 16 bit apps or some other considerations, go with x64 if not for now, for future.

As to what level of Windows, only you can answer what functionality you need. Home premium is very functional - would suggest that as your minimum.

but your system spec says you have ultimate x64. Are you pulling our legs
