    Yes using x64 OS gives you access to all of your RAM, there is no 3GB limit that x86 has, and yes its a bit faster because you would be able to use the full potential of your CPU, but OS itself does need a bit more RAM and (i think) it does require slightly larger chink of your HDD space.

    Honestly though, in 99% of the cases, average PC user wouldn't be able to tell the difference until they open C:\ and see two Program Files folders.

    For playing the latest games, x64 will almost always be better because it lets the processor access all of your RAM, unlike 32 bit which only lets it access around 3.5 GB. With x64, you should see faster performance when multi-tasking intensive applications.

    I think 64-bit is better, b'coz it's perform better compare to 32-bit. 64-bit operating system will be able to utilize a much higher amount of memory(RAM).

    64bit Hands down. 64bit can utilize more RAM. whilst 32bit is limited.

    anyone gonna ask the op for their config?? if you are running under 3 gig of ram then you need to use 32 bit otherwise you will be paging far to much. 4 gig plus 64 bit

    what if he only has 2 gig or ram? or less ? 64 bit would cripple it as its ram requirement is much higher with 64 bit

    It depends on your hardware. If you have very poor hardware, go with 32bit, otherwise if you have decent or high end stuff, get 64bit.
    If you're unsure, I'd say pick the 64bit version.
