nope all 32 bit OS's can only read 3.25Gb RAM
and as for the slower IE i dont think so i have 64 bit vista ultimate on my desktop and it runs just fine.
the only downfall is that some programs wont run correclty on 64 bit like my second life that continuously says corrupt file - second life.exe
so its upto you how much RAM do you have ? coz if you have 4Gb i have to agree then its a waste and id def go with 64 bit
