2GB's RAM and will not run more than that.. 


So would I see better performance with 32-bit Home Premium Edition Win 7    or 64-Bit Corporate Edition Windows 7? 

These are my only 2 choices as they are from work, pc is a HP dc7700 SFF Pent D cpu 2.8gz with 2gb's of Ram and 80GB hdd. 


let me know!

64 bit is usually preferred if you have atleast 4GB of RAM. The main difference is that 64 bit can efficiently handle large amounts of RAM compared to 32 bit. So I'd suggest you to go with 32 bit. Go here to learn more about 32 bit and 64 bit version : http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/32-bit-and-64-bit-windows#1TC=windows-7

With only two cores in the processor and only 2 GB of RAM. You'll never see the benefit of a 64 bit OS. Sorry to say. To be honest this is a Q4 2008 processor. I don't think it will even run a 64 bit OS.

oHHHHhh it'll run it....  Windows 7 Ready tool says it will and a while back I know the IT peeps did some dry runs on it and kept 64-bit win 7 on their dc7700's.. but I'm sure with more RAM..

 

Okie doke, bottom line is I won't realize the gains of 64bit with this processor so no point in possibly stressing it out and better off with a 32bit version of Windows 7..

 

 

got it!

 

thanks!
