Vista 32 bit vs 64 bit
I am building another computer. I am trying to decide wether to get the Vista 64 bit or Vista 32 bit. Will this system handle 64 bit? Should i go with 64 so i can upgrade ram to 8gb later whn I upgrade?

You need 64-bit for 4GB ram.

But will 64 work on my setup? Besides the Ram amount, Is there any benefits to having 64 over 32 bit?

Yes it will work. If you get 32-bit, you can only see 3-3.5GB of ram.
