My System Specs

Default

4 gigs of ram or less I use 32 bit Windows.

6 gigs or more I'll use a 64 bit OS....

From what I understand, if you're using all 32bit software then you're probably using more ram using a 64bit OS with 4 gigs of ram than you would using a 32bit OS with 4 gigs of ram due to the overhead of WOW64.

In order to avoid all this I got 8gigs of ram and used 64bit OS. At the time 4 extra gigs of ram was $55 so I could not justify not getting it.... I tend to keep my computers so this machine may become any number of things in the future.
