Should i use 32 or 64 bit windows 7?

i am building two budget PC's for my local youth center, the important specs are as follows:

Intel Celeron G550 CPU (2.6GHz)
gigabyte H61M-S2PV motherboard
2Gb DDR3 kingston RAM

i cannot decide whether to install 32 or 64 bit windows, i'm planning to use Windows 7 Home premium, however with the low mount of RAM i thought 32 bit might run a bit faster, will it? or will running 64 bit make the system more responsive? Any help will be appreciated greatly

  1. if you plan to get 4gb ram eventually get the 64 bits version. otherwise stick to 32bits.
  2. I would use 64bit (x64). CPU's designed within the last 7 years (or longer) are designed for 64bit. I would also put 4gigs of memory (2x2gbs) in each machine if possible . Use both slots.2gbs is quite light and the computers will probably be using the hard drive page file which will slow them down. The cost will be another 25 bucks or so per machine but they should be pretty speedy and last a while.
