Is it worth installing 64bit OS if I only have 2GB of RAM?

Just like in the title, do you guys think it's worth installing 64bit OS if I have only 2GB of RAM?

My personal opinion is no. Unless you have at least 4 Gbs of RAM, I can't see any benefit to running a 64bit version of Windows 7.

I would also suggest you try it to see. You can even shrink C to create a new partition to try it on for a side-by-side comparison. I recently tried 64 bit this way on a 2gb RAM PC and saw no difference. But it's been known to lag a bit in the past on less than 4gb.
