The Microsoft requirements say minimum 2gb for 64bit but i googled and ppl are saying only get 64bit of you have 4gb+. Does that mean I should get windows 7 or 8.1 at 32bit? --- GG Riot http://i.imgur.com/Hs8Y1vQ.png
Just get 64bit and Windows 8. If you hate Metro you can install a start menu and get the same but still superior experience to Windows 7. --- pon pon way way way ponpon way pon way pon pon, way way ponponpon way way pon way pon way way.
There's only a handful of reasons to run 32 bit OSes and if you had one of those reasons you'd likely already know that you needed a 32 bit OS. Those reasons are a piece of legacy software that you have to have only working in 32 bit, a professional application (a lot of software companies will only help you troubleshoot their software if you're using windows xp/7 32 bit professional), or only having a 32 bit processor. Situations 1 and 3 are pretty rare though and none of the three sound like your situation.
As for which OS to use, if you already have 7 I'd stick with it. If you're paying for one or the other already I'd go with 8.1. --- Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there XBL, PSN, Steam, Origin, BSN, GFAQs, MC: PhilOnDez
Make sure you can find 64 bit drivers first. If you can, no reason to bother with 32 bit. --- i5 2500k at 4.5ghz - EVGA GTX 670 - MSI Z68A-GD80 - Seasonic X 750W - GSkill 16GB - Crucial m4 128GB - NZXT Beta EVO
