Go for 64 bit. It handles more memory and most applications will be 64 bit in the future. 64 bit does not put out higher frame rates but it is the option that future proofs.

I already bought windows 7 ultimate and I see two CD's in the box it came with: one says "32bit" , the other "64bit" so it's not a money issue, only a question of which one will make my specified hardware - faster

for you, no different since you have less then 4gb ram. but install the 64bit just in case you add more later.
