its all depend, 3GB with 64bit is not faster then 2GB with 32bit because the 64bit version need more ram so its the same its equal, the 32bit version can allow you to put 3GB of ram max and the 64bit version can allow you to put 128GB of ram max and another things if you have 32bit with 2GB and another computer with 32bit too but 3GB its not gonna be really really faster just a little that you cant really see the difference but its sure if you have 2GB dual channel its better then 3GB single channel because ram is there to transfer information to the processor and if two ram can work like a chain its better anyways the principal thing you want to watch on it for the speed is the processor if its dual core and how much GHz you have
I'm going to buy a very basic laptop for work and I've found two models at around the same starting price. One has 2GB Ram, and one has 3GB ram. One comes with windows 7 32 bit and the other is 64 bit. I have Vista 64 bit on my personal laptop, but rarely use 64 bit applications because alot of stuff isn't supported (especially using the web browsers). With everything else being equal, is it worth it to get the 3GB system, or will the 64 bit programs become resource hogs? Would I be better off staying with a 2 gb system and 32 bit apps? Is there a significant difference either way?
