I was sorta in your spot. I decided to get 2gb and add that in. So total of 4gb now. It ran fine with 2gb tho, but I did notice a difference with 4. My O/S is also 64bit, I couldn't tell you the difference. As far as drivers go, Windows7 installed 95% of what I needed on the first installation, then the rest via updates, I had to find a HP printer 64bit driver, that was no problem. Getting my motherboard to recognize all 4gb of Ram was the only issue. But that got figured out eventually.

I would do a clean install of Windows 7 whatever you decide. Sounds like there are several ways to install Windows. ?? Yes there are. Upgrading and such. Don't do that. Back your stuff up, pictures or whatever, then do a "Clean install".

Any clean install will be faster than an existing install.
