64bit if you want to take advantage of more than 3.5GB of RAM.

That is not a valid Windows purchase. They are selling old and broken Dell PC's, and the included Windows 7 OS.
The catch is, you don't get the hardware unless you go to their warehouse and pick it up. So they get to sell that to someone else.

Yeah that link looks a little fishy. I'd also get a better motherboard.

Ebay purchases of systems or components is not a good idea.
