It would not give you any noticeable increase in speed. With that laptop I would stick with 32bit.

It is faster. Visual studio 2005/2010 is 64-bit supportive and so is Oracle according to Oracle Database Software Downloads On your Dell laptop, personally I would think you will be better on X86 instead of a X64 os. You computer probably will have issues with drivers, I wouldn't risk the trouble.

Hope this helps you decide

1) That is actually relative. I will say that if you are going to use more than 4 gigs of RAM and you are a heavy program user, it will seem a little faster as it will have more memory available and less virtual memory swapping, otherwise, no, there would not be much of a difference. And when I say a heavy program user, you are consistently have a lot of programs open, namely Microsoft and Adobe programs are notorious for using a lot of memory, therefore, your experience with programs will seem to be 'faster' as you have more memory (IE Comparing when you are stuck with 4 gigs versus say 8 or more), as the OS is less likely to try and juggle the programs between physical and virtual ram in an x64 environment with more ram than in an x32 environment with 3-3.5 gigs available.

2) Technically, those should function.

3) As long as your system meets the minimum system requirements for the OS, in this case, a 64 bit capable processor, which the D520 should be with a Core 2 Duo Processor, and 2 gigs of RAM and about 20 gigs of disk space and a Direct X 9 capable Video Chipset. Noted from here: Windows 7 system requirements - Microsoft Windows

For optimal experience, the Laptop should have at least a Direct X 10 capable video chipset, 3+ gigs of RAM and 40 gigs of disk space.
