Hello and Welcome !

I think your OK with Windows 7 Ultimate because 32 bit OS can take advantage upto 4 GB anything higher than that we might wanna upgrade the OS to 64-Bit

I suggest upgrading to 64-bit, as it will allow you to get the most out of your hardware. Please bear in mind that there is also no upgrade path from 32-bit to 64-bit so you will need to reinstall Windows if you upgrade.

If you did upgrade to 64 you could use all off your 4gig of RAM but it would require a complete clean install.
You would see not big improvement in performance but you would be ready when newer programs when come out that use 64 bit.

The first two steps are to back up all your data, and then the second is to have a friend sit with you for the first time who's done OS installs before.

I also like to have all of my drivers ready on a flash drive.

If you have a second hard disk around, I would suggest cloning the original system disk so you have a back up if anything goes wrong. Or, you could install the 64 bit Windows to the second drive.

I keep a spare 80 GB drive around just for that purpose. It saved me a lot of headache at least once.
