4 gigs is a waste if you are running vista 32 bit since it can only see 3.4 gigs of that. If you running 64 bit it can see the full 4 gigs, issue is a lot of stuff doesnt work in 64 bit.. So in short stay with 3 gigs anymore is worthless.

Thanks!!!

What is the difference beween 32 and 64 bit? What doesn't run on 64?

Also I think "Premium" is 32 and "Ultimate" is 64...is this correct?

Agreed however a 64 bit system is fully backwards compatible. An application like Office 2007 (which is 32 bit, for now) works fine for the exception of a couple of small problems; READ HERE

You should be fine with a 64 bit system, that way you can utilize all of your RAM.

Yea thats what I thought but its windows vista... Good luck I had to downgrade to 32 bit to get things to work... One thing I hate about MS is they claim things are backwards compatible but they are not..

You can get either in 32 or 64 bit. You have to pay $10 for a disk after you buy vista to get the 64 bit disk..

A lot of the programs that run on XP dont run correctly or at all on 64bit vista, but then again I find it more of a vista issue and a lot of programs are not in a rush to become compatible with vista.. I would buy a new PC with XP pro before vista.

I still dont get why you just dont run boot camp on your mac? You would save a lot of money..
