oh ok then.. there are 32bit applications and 64bit application. there are less 64bit applications. (not sure y) and 34bit apps only work on a 32bit OS and vise versa. so if ur used to dealing with the 64bit apps then go for 64bit Vista but id go with 32bit vista, cuz SP1 is gonna solve the issue with the RAM showing up and will show all 4 gigs

where did u here this from?
and thats not true 32bit apps can run on a 64bit os
just as 16bit apps can run on a 32bit
most games are 64/32 bit
and who said sp1 would allow vista 32bit to see 4g of ram
no 32bit os can do that to my knowledge
