i got the 64 bit, it runs flawlessly so far.

one thing i was shocked with was that windows update was actually useful to me. i could find the realtek audio codec nywhere, for 64 bit i mean, but windows update had it and my sound works awesome now

I got the 32-bit because I only see the 64-bit benefiting gamers and people with 4GB.
Are there other benefits there?

and the key last for a year right? I read that somewhere, but I dont know if it were true.

well its not going to slow ya down any I don't think to get 64 bit. ya might as well just spring for the 64... But I may be wrong but I really don't see why it would hurt to have 64 bit if your not using 4 gbs
