Theres only one problem left with my build and thats vista. I want to get home premium but im wondering what are the advantages to 32-bit )besides better driver support)? Should I get 4GB of RAM to run vista (for eithier version I would just use ~3.2GB of it in 32-bit)? This is my only problem left and I want to get it solved soon as I will start ordering parts tomorrow. As always, any help is appreciated.

CPU: Q6600 (i will probably oc it sometime to around 3GHz)
Cooling: Zalman CNPS9500 (with LED)
PSU: PC Power and Cooling Quad Silencer 750W
Mobo: ASUS P5Kn32-E SLI
Vid. Card: PNY XLR8 8800GTX

Hard Drive 1: Raptor 10000RPM 150GB
Hard Drive 2: Seagate 250GB 7200RPM
