Hello AIV;
My specs are a little older than yours, I am using DDR to your DDR2. I have the 64 bit Home Premium and have used 2GB and 4GB and cannot tell any difference in performance. With all of the possible driver issues with 64 and BSODs, I would also suggest 32 bit 7 would be a better choice at this time. Your next computer (with a quad core and SSD hard drive <g> ) should be able to take advantage of the additional memory and provide a visible improvememt in performance.

Cheers!
Robert

You aren't like to notice that it runs slower than 32 bit. Neither version will be a speed demon on your processor.

You might have programs that won't run on 64 bit.

64 bit isn't "better" than 32 bit. It's just different in ways that you probably would never notice.

I could point you to some info, but i don't suppose it would help much.

I'll bail out of this thread.

At this moment, I am watching cable tv (NCIS), watching for Live Messenger messages, watching for POP mail from my remote Linux mail server with UltraVNC, and surfing, posting at Windows Seven Forums. Not slow here?
