Re: 64-bit or 32-bit Vista
Go for the 64bit version. Before you know it, everything is going to be designed for 64bit from the start and in order to try and future proof your system then 64bit is the better way to go IMO. Also try for the ultimate edition. Its just simply better. Or if you can hold of if you already have something, mid next year windows 7 will be comming out. You can hold off untill then and get the latest and greatest.
