    The x64 version of Windows 7 editions is good and stable supporting more than 4GB of memory.

    Has some incompatibilities and not run 16 bit applications. With old drivers also.

    Besides it handling more than 3.25 gb of physical ram, it computes quicker than its 32 bit counterpart but some 32 bit programs such as some anti-virus and media players such as iTunes require a 64 bit version because of drivers. 32 Bit drivers are NOT compatible with a 64 bit operating system so please be advised that hardware peripherals that require a special driver have a 64 bit driver available or else it may not operate correctly

    Nope not at all. 64 bit recommends 2gb minimum so you're set ;)
