Windows 7: 32 bit vs 64 bit Comparison

Windows 7 Professional x64 Service Pack 1
 
 

My Philosophy:

If you have a 64 bit capable cpu, install 64 bit, regardless of how much memory is installed

With most newer machines, this is fine, but if you have less than 3Gb of RAM, you should definitely install a x32 OS.

Iv'e probably missed it in this long thread but Windows 7 Home Premium X64 can't address more than 16 gb of ram. H P being the most popular and most modern desktop motherboards able to take at least 32 gb with the top end Intel at 64 gb of ram, it would be well to remember to run Professional / Ultimate or Enterprise for memory intensive applications.
