W7 X64 bit overkill on my machine?

  1. Hi people. Ive been reading up on w7 32 v 64 bit editions and im wondering with my machines specs should I stick with the 32 bit as I only have 4gb or RAM and I dont plan on upgrading hardware anytime soon? In saying that can anyone see any obvious issues with the hardware I currently have?

    You can stick with it for now. When time comes to build a whole new PC, get 64 bit.

    Depends what you want to use the PC for. There's nothing at all wrong with what you have, unless you are into a lot of heavy gaming. Would recommend a large 1Tb external USB attached drive for backup (take images at least monthly).
