64bit v 32bit Windows 7 upgrade?

The only reason I can see for not running 64 bit is that your peripherals; scanner, printer etc have not 64 bit drivers available.

Not only will 64 bit enable use of all the RAM you have installed but it also manages the memory much better than 32 bit.

In any event when you but W7 you will get 32 bit and 64 bit versions. You can run 64 bit and if you have problems revert to 32 bit
