I don't know much about the difference between 32-bit and 64-bit Vista, but I'm sure you'll want some more RAM.

32-bit can only address a maximum of 4GB, some of which you'll lose due to memory mapped IO, videocards, etc. On 64-bit you can theoretically address up to 16 exabytes of memory, although Vista 64-bit is artificially limited to 64GB of RAM.

Why do I never see/hear the word "petabytes"? It's like memory goes straight from terabytes to exabytes.
