————————–

If you have a 64-bit compatible processor I recommend you always go with a 64-bit Operating system. 64-bit operating systems are backward compatible with 32-bit applications, so you get the best of both worlds. The only problem is finding compatible drivers for older devices.

Also, 32 bit Operating Systems are not able to map more than 3.2 GB (approximately) of RAM, so if your machine has 4 GB or more, take this into consideration (if you have a processor that supports x64).

    At its most basic level the big difference between 32-bit and 64-bit is how memory is accessed in the PC. 64-bit is faster and more efficient if you have a processor that supports it.
