JOSHSKORN Posted November 20, 2009 Share Posted November 20, 2009 I'd like to upgrade my mom's computer to Windows 7. It currently only has 2 GB of RAM and really no intention to upgrade it. She basically uses her computer for checking E-mail and runs this music program called Finale.I've upgraded my computer to Windows 7 from Vista and I love it. It also has 2 GB of RAM, and I used the 64-bit version. I intend on upgrading my desktop's RAM in a few months.Other than being able to see over 3.3GB of RAM, is there any other advantage for her sake at least, to use the 32-bit version of Windows 7 over the 64-bit version? We've got fiber optic internet, as well, with speeds of about 25mbps down/20mbps up. I don't know if that might factor into the equation, such as if 64-bit is able to render information on a browser at that speed better than 32-bit. Currently, she's on Vista...and it's running slow.
