Default vista 32bit or 64bit?

(I probably shouldve posted my other forum in this section so sorry about that) Hi. I am building a gaming rig and am trying to decide which version of vista home premium to go with. Im not sure wheter or not to get 2GB or 4GB of RAM or which os to get. I play some older games and I want them to all work. Has the driver situation in 64 bit improved much? Is there a point to getting 4GB of RAM for 32-bit? Any help is appreciated as this is my last problem before I build (im hoping to start ordering parts tomorrow).

My "to be" specs:

Case: Antec 900 ATX
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
Memory: 2GB (or maybe 4GB) Crucial Ballisitx DDR2 800Mhz
Hard Drive 1: Raptor 10000RPM 150GB
Hard Drive 2: Seagate 250GB 7200RPM
DVD: Two 20x DVDRW w/Lightscribe
OS: Vista Home Premium (32 or 64 bit?)
