I am using a Windows XP Service Pack 2 and I am planning to upgrade my system. I donít want to install Windows Vista, so it was quiet clear for me to go for Windows 7. I had already made my mind and had decided that I will install Windows 7 but I again got into a big confusion when my friend asked me that whether I am going for Windows 7 32bit or 64bit. Truly saying I didnít had any sorts of knowledge regarding this, so I surfed on the Google and tried to find out the difference between the 32bit and 64bit system. I was unable to understand the specifications but got to know only one thing that if I have 4GB or less RAM then I should go for 32bit system, but some of the articles even said that 64bit system even goes well with 4GB RAM or even 2GB RAM. Now I am unable to understand what to do or which system to go with. I am using an Intel i5 processor with 4GB of RAM.
I want to know which system I should go with. I am a normal user and use my system for browsing, working on Microsoft Office and to listen to music. Will there be any boost in performance if I use a 64bit system or will it make my computer slow. I am very curious about the performance of my computer need help. Hope someone will help me with all this.
