    To be completely honest with you if you have to ask then you should stick with 32bit. Almost every wanna be "armchair" computer tech on this forum with tell you 64bit since you can use more RAM and 64bit is better bla bla bla.
    What they won't tell you is that unless your doing some high end gaming the extra RAM is a waste. Also a 64bit OS won't run software any better then a 32bit OS will. They won't tell you that while most hardware and software works fine in 64bit many devices still don't have proper 64bit drivers or don't completely fuction on 64bit OS. This isn't so much an issue if your buying completely new gear and software but still be sure to check the boxes before buying.

    64 bit computing is the immediate future of computing.
    Apps written for 64 bit computing will definitely run better, and the support for additional memory is not a trivial advantage.
    The problem with drivers is almost completely over.
    Go with 64 bit.

    64-bit Windows is a goog option for the future.
    But as concerned for the present ,
    Go with 32 bit until 64 bit systems are fully compitable

    Yeah i think i will just stick with 32Bit as of now. It seems like a lot of people are saying that same kinda thing, that there is still a lot of softwares that dont use 64Bit at the moment.

    Thanks a lot for your interest guys! you have been helpful :)
