I'd go for the larger amount of memory if you really want to use 64bit. Part of the reason for the move to 64bit computing is because with 32bit the OS is so cramped being limited to less than 4GB.

Yes, it will work fine with the 3gB of RAM. If you want to add more memory later on, you'll have to figure out the maximum amount of memory that your motherboard can handle (and the maximum that each slot can handle).

Also, I'm not sure about this, but I think that (for optimum performance) you'll have to run matched modules in sets of 3.

As usasma says, it should work OK for you. Compared to 32bit Windows, 64bit Windows needs a bit more memory for running itself, so if you run a very large application, or several things at once, you might get a performance hit a little sooner from the system needing to use the pagefile. But if you intend to run any 64bit software, now or in the future, it's 64bit you need, and if you've ordered an OEM Windows, you had to choose one or the other.

If your motherboard is one of the ones with three or four memory slots, the 3GB would have to be replaced anyway to upgrade.

Due to swollen memory pointers, items in memory on a 64-bit OS will take up slightly more space. Given the specs of your PC, you should use as much RAM as you can get. Your motherboard has six memory slots, given the expense of DDR3 memory above 2GB sticks, you should populate the slots with 2GB each of memory for maximum value. Most motherboards supporting i7 processors can support about 24GB of RAM. As a side note, unless your using the PC with a business, you should get Vista Home Premium or Ultimate.
