Windows 7: 64 bit or 32 bit?

32-bit and 64-bit Windows: frequently asked questions
64-bit versions of Windows are for computer users who have high-performance needs and are typically running a computer with 4 GB or more of random access memory.
Put simply, a 64-bit PC can handle larger amounts of information than a 32-bit system. Since it can use more RAM—4 GB and up—a 64-bit computer can be more responsive when you're running lots of programs at once.
Both 32-bit and 64-bit installation discs are included in the Windows 7 retail box.
Most 64-bit operating systems can handle large amounts of memory—typically 4 gigabytes (GB) of random access memory (RAM) or more—more efficiently than 32-bit operating systems. However, not all computers are 64-bit capable.
All packaged retail editions of Windows 7 (except for Home Basic) include both 32- and 64-bit software.
