win 7 oem build version

I'm planning to buy it but need help deciding on 32 or 64bit. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. It'll be installed on its own h.d. so I'll have a dual boot system.

I am the customer & hope to modify the mpeg 4 files I took while cruising the mtns in Colorado. I was told 7 had updated their media player & could do more than in xp pro.

Have those that wrote that back it up. While I really enjoy the move to 64 bit, I have apps that use it.

As to the new OEM rule, some are very upset about not being able to find support from Microsoft for it. Now you know.

So,,,,if I have no apps that use it, I don't need it or get it anyway for future use ?
Thanks for your replies, Bob.

Even if you didn't.

It does open up the memory to the max for 32 bit apps. I can guess many want a thesis on 32 to 64 bit OS comparisons but you can get that on google. Here I'll go with the 64 bit and enjoy the move.
