Hope you have considered this important factor while thinking of installing 32-bit Win7:


Physical Memory Limits: Windows 7

The following table specifies the limits on physical memory (RAM) for Windows 7.

Windows 7 Ultimate

192 GB

Windows 7 Enterprise

Besides, we can expect that most of the popular applications should soon become available on the 64-bit platform.
