    I'll make it simpler for you. Don't bother with 32-bit unless your hardware is limited to 32-bit. Your rig is not confined to 32-bit, so go with 64-bit. Windows 10 64-bit will be out in less than a month. Anyone with Windows 7 or Windows 8 will get a free upgrade. If you are purchasing a license, you might as well skip the upgrade path and get a Windows 10 license.

    As for Home vs Professional, that depends on your needs. Home is all the biggest majority of users need.

    Professional edition (or Business and Enterprise) will give you local policy access if you run gpedit.msc

    Hey according to me you can buy professional 64 bit PC because its will be able to access all things and you can easily access all features of windows. In Windows 7 home premium version you unable to access many things so try to buy professional version of windows
