Actually he mentions in OP that he has upgraded to 4GB of RAM. Using mire than 4GB of RAM is only one of the advantages of 64-bit Windows. There are many reasons 64-bit is faster, more reliable and safer than 32-bit. http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...omparison.html
indeed and even on that list there is various things missing.
eg. 64bit has a higher default desktop heap limit, higher cache limit, higher paging limit, better driver security and of course is more future proof since new ram will work fine.
I am also of the opinion windows 7 was primarily developed in 64bit and the 32bit was something of an afterthought done to keep people happy.
