It really depends on what you are running and if you go above 3.5 GB of RAM for you to see a noticable improvement or not though.

I would recommend 64-bit, but I would check out what Antman reported first though to make sure that you will be able to.

I had a dig around the Dell site last night and other than they are going to send out upgrade Vista to Win 7 kits for those that purchased b/w certain dates if the purchaser ordered them (not me) but I couldn't find anything that helped. Didn't even say what was in the kits.
