You would probably not be happy with 64bit - for a variety of reasons. 32bit will be perfect for your system.

You'd be better off sticking with 32 bit. Unless you want to have 4GB or more RAM, you should use 32 bit Windows. Otherwise, it'll actually slow down your computer.

OS: Win 7 64bit. Is it generally not a problem to choose to install a piece of 32bit software outside the win 7 default program folder for 32bit software? Or is 32bit software only supposed to be running flawlessly, if installed in that default 32bit folder? Thanks.
